Join us for a film screening, discussion and action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons!
Golden Rule S/V Crew member and Golden Rule Project Ambassador, Zoe Byrd, will show the 25-minute documentary, “Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule” about four Quaker peace activists, led by Navy veteran Albert Bigelow, who in 1958 set sail to the Marshall Islands influencing public demand that ended underwater, atmospheric, and outer space nuclear bomb tests in 1963. The historic peace boat later sank, in 2010, and was rebuilt in Humboldt Bay, California. The Golden Rule, a Project of Veterans For Peace, is once again “Sailing for a Nuclear-Free World and a Peaceful, Sustainable Future”.
Making Waves filmmaker, James Seamus Knight, will be attending and will also screen his documentary short, Holy Week: The Story of the 2016 Sacred Peace Walk.
Dr. Linda Marie Richards, historian of science at the School of History, Philosophy and Religion Oregon State University, who works on human rights and nuclear history, will discuss her book manuscript.
Byrd, Knight, and Dr. Richards, all participated in the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament, a nine and half month walk from LA to DC in 1986. The three will answer questions and discuss nuclear abolition with the audience following the films.
This educational, fundraising event is a call to action and is free to the public. Donations to the Golden Rule Project 2019 sailing season are appreciated.
