Save Aug. 7 for remembering Hiroshima, Nagasaki

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.

Attend Henry Stoever’s jury trial 9/6

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!

Why I trespassed at a nuclear weapons plant

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.

‘Unprecedented peril’ to think nuclear war is winnable

“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.”
