Veterans for Peace Golden Rule Project: Sailing for a Nuclear-Free World - A Party with a Purpose
Sun. Feb. 25, 3-5pm,
Newport Boy Scout Sea Base, 1931 West Coast Hwy
Once-in-a-lifetime party with the crew of the Golden Rule peace boat, and the world premiere of the documentary, "Peace Sail: The Story of the Golden Rule". Party guests will be invited to see the Golden Rule and enjoy conversation with the crew. Wine and snacks will be served followed by the film premiere and a silent auction. It has been sixty years since the Golden Rule’s attempted voyage to the Marshall Islands to interfere with U.S. atmospheric nuclear bomb testing. In celebration we will be raising funds for the Golden Rule's upcoming voyage to Hawaii, the Marshall Islands, Japan and maybe even the Korean Peninsula. With the world once again worried about the possibility of nuclear war, this is the time to raise public awareness about the need to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all. Sailing this historic little anti-nuclear sailboat across the Pacific is a dramatic way to spread the word in the U.S. and around the globe.
