Dr. King and the Cloud
On March 30, 2018, Good Friday, at 6:45 AM, at the corner of South Vasco Rd. & Patterson Pass Rd. outside the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, Ecumenical Peace Institute and the Livermore Conversion Project offer a service of worship and nonviolent witness calling for an end to U.S. development of nuclear weapons.

Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. King and fifty years after the initiation of the Poor People’s Campaign, we will hear from Rev. Ben McBride, Co-Director at PICO California and a leader in today’s new Poor People’s Campaign.

We believe Dr. King’s spirit is with us at the Livermore Lab where new nuclear weapons continue to be designed, saying once again, “In a day when . . . guided ballistic missiles are carving highways of death through the stratosphere, no nation can win a war. Today it is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence; it is either nonviolence or nonexistence.”

Following the procession to the main gate observing Stations of the Cross of Empire, there will be music, liturgical dance and opportunity for nonviolent acts of witness. After the witness there will be a community gathering at a nearby church where light refreshments will be served.
