NevadaDesertExperience.org has been organizing interfaith retreats and events at the US nuclear test site for 20 years now. Taking direct action for peace is the best way to ring in the new year!

NevadaDesertExperience.org will hold ceremonies at the Nevada
Test Site following a march on the Las Vegas Strip on December 31st
2002. The New Year’s Eve gathering begins December 30th at St.
James Church in Las Vegas, and ends at brunch on January 1st. Nevada Desert Experience (NDE) has been organizing interfaith retreats and events at the NTS for 20 years now.
A few years ago NDE created the event which brought over 500 people from around the world to Las Vegas and the USA’s nuclear Test Site for an alternative celebration of New Year’s Eve. The group hosted
workshops and ceremonies in Las Vegas and out in the desert at the Nevada
Test Site at midnight to welcome the new
millennium–taking action for peace. More than 300 people were arrested
at the Test Site just after midnight, ringing in the new year on January
1st 2000---the first mass arrests for civil resistance of this century,
less than a month after the battle for Seattle. Unfortunately, the prayers
didn’t have an immediate effect: as we all have seen, the
domination system in this century seems to uphold injustice and violence
ever more viciously. From the cries of the victims of 9-11 to the USA’s
plans to further
cripple and destroy the people of Iraq to the impending growth of the
industry with its inherent
dangers, humanity is in deep trouble. Now more than ever, people
need to gather and take collective actions based in Love and Peace. So
NDE again is calling people to return to the
desert to create peace on earth and good will to all.
IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO PARTICIPATE!
Join the company of Western
Shoshone Spiritual Leader Corbin
Harney, Pace e
Butigan, eco-philosopher Joanna
Macy, cross-cultural educator Fran
Macy, author and nonviolent activist John
Dear, and many others “For the Sake of the Future”, in Southern Nevada.
Following nonviolence training and a vigil/march on the Strip, the group will carpool to the Mercury Exit
of US Hwy 95 (60 miles from the edge of Las Vegas) for a candle-light
procession into the Nevada Test Site. This prayer-action for the end of nuclearism will be a sobering and lovely way to spend your New Year’s Eve!
To participate, call NDE @ (702) 646 4814 or check out: NevadaDesertExperience.org.
