Starting in September, our book club, via zoom, will explore one of Thích Nhất Hạnh’s books with meditations on gratitude for our lives and our interconnectedness with the world.
Please come Sunday, Aug. 7, to our PeaceWorks annual Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance. We’ll park at 6:15 pm on Prospect near Mo. Hwy. 150. We’ll walk (or take a shuttle) to our 7 pm rally site, the entry to the nuclear-weapon parts plant.
Better Ballot KC is trying to get ranked choice voting on the ballot in KC MO. One way to show the need for RCV is to hold a “parallel election” for voters leaving polls Aug. 2. Volunteers needed!
We call for action: Come to our Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance Aug. 7. Attend the jury trial of a nuclear weapon resister Sept. 6. Volunteer at our PeaceWorks KC Local Art Fair Sept. 24-25. And join us Oct. 1 to protest drone warfare at Whiteman AFB.
Stoever, who crossed the property line at the local nuke-parts plant in KC MO in 2021, was found guilty in February and sentenced to 2 years’ probation, plus fines. He appealed the decision and comes to a jury trial Sept. 6. You come too!
We are moving forward building new nuclear weapons, not disarming old ones. On Memorial Day, my wife and I spoke out with our bodies. We acted for our children and grandchildren and for all the children and grandchildren of the world.
Treat yourself to the sights and sounds of our Memorial Day event, Prohibit Nukes, Promote HOPE. Take courage from this video, our slide shows, and our livestream!
“The growing delusion among war planners that a nuclear war can be won places the world in unprecedented peril,” said Brian Terrell. “In this time of climate catastrophe, famine and pandemic, the waste of resources to build nuclear weapons is an unspeakable crime.”
