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.
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.
“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.”
“I would suggest a rally to convince ALL people of the utter futility of war and violence,” said Pastor Sonja Griffith in her talk Memorial Day.
On Memorial Day, 65 persons took time to walk, rally and support a line-crossing at the National Security Campus. At this KC MO facility, 85% of mechanical and electronic parts for US nuclear weapons are made or procured.
“Amid such suffering and with the risk of escalation increasing by the day, our call must be clear: End the war now,” says Kevin Martin, president of Peace Action, the network to which PeaceWorks belongs.
PeaceWorks and other groups will hold out hope for a nuke-free world through a walk and rally near the KC MO nuclear weapon parts plant.
“No one wants to be arrested but / Life is deliriously complicated / So it may be the right response” begins Ron Faust’s poem on civil resistance, risking arrest.
