Charles Carney speaks at Peace Walk Finale Rally  

While on the Flint Hills Nature Trail, I realized how deeply our radical interconnectedness with plants, trees, animals, bugs, deer and wolves, and with other humans, renders any act of violence toward each other or the Earth utterly ludicrous. We will not go quietly into the deep dark destruction of nuclear madness!

A new court hearing for the nuclear weapon resisters was set at 10 a.m. Sept. 13. I was happy and proud to stand with these five men as they created awareness of the horrors of nuclear weapons.

Resisting nuclear weapons in a climate crisis—stopping the next catastrophe before it begins
