Today, after 70 years, nearly 16,000 nuclear weapons-94% of them held by the USA and Russia-continue to pose an intolerable threat to humanity, and the danger of nuclear war is growing. Whether a nuclear exchange is initiated by accident, miscalculation or madness, the radiation will know no boundaries. The USA plans to spend a trillion dollars over the next thirty years "modernizing" its nuclear arsenal. The human cost of this is immeasurable-to our health, environment, ethics, and democracy, to our prospects for global peace, and to our confidence in human survival.


Program featuring Daniel Ellsberg, Country Joe McDonald, Taiko drummers and more; followed by a short march to the Lab gate, a traditional Japanese Bon Dance, nonviolent direct action and witness.

Sponsored by dozens of Bay Area peace and justice groups. More info: Tri-Valley CAREs, 925-443-7148, and Western States Legal Foundation, 510-839-5877
