Noted peace activist David Swanson, director of WorldBeyondWar.org and author of numerous books including “War Is a Lie,” will be keynote speaker at the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action’s (www.gzcenter.org) Hiroshima-Nagasaki commemoration event Aug. 11-14th and will address the gathering by video on Sunday, August 13th.

Swanson’s speech will highlight a weekend of nuclear resistance events at the Poulsbo, WA peace house, which sits on 3.8 acres and shares a border fence with the Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, West Coast home port to the Trident nuclear weapon system.
The public is invited. All events are free.
On August 12th – for the second consecutive year – the Ground Zero Center will sponsor the “Boats by Bangor” action, a ship and kayak flotilla action on the Hood Canal in which activists sail/paddle directly in front of the Trident submarine base in a demonstration of resistance against Trident and nuclear weapons.
Last year “Boats by Bangor” featured the presence of “The Golden Rule,” the peace ship whose nuclear resistance mission is sponsored by Veterans for Peace (more information at http://www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org/). For information on participating in “Boats by Bangor” contact Rodney Brunelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
