ABOLISHING NUCLEAR WEAPONS: RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE!

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A Presentation by Leonard Eiger, Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2020 l 7 PM l ANACORTES LIBRARY

Ground Zero Center shares a border fence with the Trident Nuclear Submarine Naval Base on the Kitsap Peninsula at Bangor and works toward a nuclear weapons-free world. The number of nuclear weapons deployed at Bangor make it the largest operational concentration of nuclear weapons in the US arsenal. Washington state is the sixth largest recipient of Department of Defense funds.

Leonard coordinates Ground Zero’s media and outreach efforts and will talk about Ground Zero’s work in a rapidly changing and violent world. From leafleting, vigils, and training, to blocking trains bringing nuclear warheads to Bangor, Ground Zero has remained true to its nonviolent roots for over four decades.

Sponsored by No More Bombs.

“So long as nuclear weapons exist and nations hold on to them as tools of prestige and power projection, it is only a matter of time before the unspeakable happens.” – Ground Zero
