During the last few weeks, widespread heartfelt tributes followed Daniel Ellsberg’s public letter disclosing that he has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, with a prognosis that he has only three to six months to live. FMI: https://defusenuclearwar.org/ellsberg/
In the words of the Ellsberg Initiative for Peace and Democracy, “America’s most famous whistleblower, Ellsberg has devoted his life to the nonviolent struggle for peace, truth, and democracy. In 1971, he risked his freedom by releasing to the press and public a 7,000-page top-secret history of the Vietnam War – the Pentagon Papers – exposing decades of government lies and deceit.”
Now, we join this grassroots initiative, launched by the Defuse Nuclear War coalition. and participate in Daniel Ellsberg Week, April 24 to 30. No matter where you live in this vast expanse of Maine, there are many options for how you can take part.
