Film Screening, Discussion & Action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

Historic Sailboat Project Supports UN Treaty to Ban 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”.

Discussion will follow the film. Zoe will also present the ICAN Cities Appeal, where all over the world, cities are taking the lead and calling on their governments to join the Nuclear Ban Treaty.

The Golden Rule Project is preparing for an epic voyage around the Pacific - to Hawaii, the Marshall Islands, Guam, Okinawa, Korea, Japan and more.  The spring 2019 crossing to Hawaii will take about a month.

The Pacific voyage will bring attention to the ongoing effects of nuclear bomb testing in the Pacific, and to the environmental and human impacts of hundreds of military bases in the Pacific Islands.   The team plans to be in Japan in August 2020 for the 75th anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, then sail back to California in the spring and summer of 2021.

With tensions so high between nuclear-armed nations, it is more important than ever to bring a message of peace into the Pacific. “The possibility of nuclear war today is all too real,” says Gerry Condon of Veterans For Peace. “It is time to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all. The U.S. can show leadership by being the first nuclear power to sign the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.” Map 2018-21 for Brochure Rev C
