Good Friday Action

People concerned about the continuing development of nuclear weapons will come to the corner of Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road, outside the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Laboratory, for an interfaith prayer service followed by nonviolent acts of witness. Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech given on April 4, 1967, the theme of the gathering will be "Beyond Nuclear Weapons, Beyond Empire, Beyond Racism

Our speaker, David Hartsough, is a leader in nonviolent efforts to end war and injustice. A Quaker, David Hartsough is Executive Director of Peaceworkers in San Francisco and co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce. Hartsough met Martin Luther King during the Montgomery bus boycott in 1956 and has been active in civil rights and the anti-nuclear movement since the 1950s. He is author of the newly published book, Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist. From the corner we will walk to the gates of the Lab, pausing along the way to mourn the deaths of the people of color in our communities who have been killed by police and "security" forces. Some will block the gates, risking arrest. A community gathering at Asbury United Methodist Church follows at about 10:00. Light refreshments will be served. This is a chance to share our work and actions. This event is wheelchair accessible. Principal organizers are Ecumenical Peace Institute and Livermore Conversion Project.

Location: Corner of Vasco and Patterson Pass Roads, Livermore
