Description

Join us for a special screening of two new peace activism films on Sunday, July 29 at 6:00 p.m. at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland.

“Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule” is the remarkable story of four men who in 1958 dared to sail a small wooden boat into the US nuclear testing zone in the Marshall Islands—risking their lives to call attention to the devastating effects of radiation on the people and the planet. When the crew was arrested and jailed in Honolulu, public outcry for their release led to the Limited Test Ban Treaty. Restored by Veterans for Peace, this historic peace boat is now on a new voyage to promote peace and nuclear disarmament worldwide.

“Holy Week: The Story of the 2016 Sacred Peace Walk” follows a group of dedicated peace activists on an annual 60-mile pilgrimage from Las Vegas to the Nevada National Security Site (Nuclear Test Site). Led by spiritual leaders of the Western Shoshone Nation, this interfaith journey culminates in a day of nonviolent direct action at the gates of the NNSS.

Following the screening, there will be a Q and A session with filmmaker James Knight.

Admission $5 to $8, sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds. Funds benefit the Northwest Interfaith Peace Walk, Nevada Desert Experience, and the VFP Golden Rule Project.
