Catholic Workers Farm Vigil

A peace demonstration for justice at Livermore's nuclear weapons institution (LLNL) will be held on Monday October 16th (rescheduled/postponed from the last week of September) for one hour beginning at 7:30 am. The location at LLNL is at the West Gate on Vasco Rd. This monthly peaceful picket against California's nuclear weapons program is a spiritual attempt to stop further destruction of the environment and human life, currently dreamed-up at LLNL. The demonstrators recognize the danger LLNL poses to civilians near LLNL and beyond due to the potential use of weapons designed at LLNL. The October public demonstration in opposition to nuclearism is on the anniversary of several nuclear explosions detonated by the US, as facilitated by LLNL. This date--October 16--is the anniversary date of eight nuclear bomb explosions code-named Logan, Dona Ana, Clearwater, Barbel, Turnstone, Seaweed B, Roquefort and Belmont, conducted in 1958 (2 bombs), 1963, 1964 (2 bombs), 1969, '85 and '86, respectively. Organizers say this vigil is a "work of mercy" to put an end to all pro-nuclear weapons work globally.

The international Catholic Worker movement has consistently stood in opposition to nuclearism since the late 1940s. LLNL is the greatest purveyor of "nuclear weapons terrorism in California", according to Catholic Workers in Calaveras County, CA.

Location: LLNL West Gate on Vasco Rd.
