Nuclear Weapons are Illegal!
Friday Jan. 21, 2022 7-8 PM
Celebrating the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons 1st Anniversary
This event is co-sponsored by Veterans For Peace, Maine
Join Veterans For Peace’s Helen Jaccard (Golden Rule Project Manager) to learn more about this unique anti-nuclear sailboat. The Golden Rule was the very first of the environmental and peace vessels to go to sea. In 1958, a crew of anti-nuclear weapons activists set sail aboard her in an attempt to interpose themselves and the boat between the U.S. Government and its atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

(and Bath next). We hope you can help publicize her east coast travels & raise awareness of the full impact of nuclear weapons and the #TreatyBan. #BanNukes!
