Our high energy and hope shine in these photos from our pro-peace, anti-nuke Memorial Day gathering. We walked a mile, passing the Administration Building for the nuclear weapon parts plant in KC MO, the National Security Campus. We rallied, we did a die-in to recall hundreds of deaths from the old plant site at Bannister Federal Complex, and some of us crossed the property line in protest.
Thanks, photographer Kriss Avery for catching our spirit! And a bonus: two videos by Kriss. One shows one of the leaders of the local Veterans for Peace, Theodore John, ringing the peace bell he made during a vets’ retreat in Philadelphia. The second has Priest (he and 337 form the duo The Recipe) presenting an excerpt from “Self-Destruction.” As in “Self-destruction. They make weapons of mass destruction. … Health care. Warfare. Who cares? Is war fair???”
