Goldsboro antiwar protesters use hammers, blood

On this day in 1993: Four protesters, including longtime peace activist Philip Berrigan, slip onto Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro and symbolically attack an F-15E Strike Eagle jet with hammers and bottles of blood.

Arrested some 100 times, the 70-year-old Berrigan has spent a total of six years in jail. He and the rest of the “Goldsboro Four” will be found guilty of destruction of government property and serve several months in jail.
