Think Outside the Bomb
What an amazingly powerful few days I had in Albuquerque, NM August 13-16th. I went to offer trainings on nonviolent direct action and organizing at the Think Outside the Bomb conference. I was very privileged to hear many powerful speakers including many Native America organizers who put out a clear call for support and solidarity around uranium mining and closing down Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Some exciting seeds were planted of the idea of ongoing actions in 2010 — an important year for anti-nuclear work. In May the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will be renegotiated in New York. President Obama has called for an end to nuclear weapons, but hat he does may be an entirely different thing. While we cannot predict the future, it felt like a call to action was thrown down to this new generation of participants. They were told that it was prophezied that this generation would lead us out of the chaos. I saw many inspired and talented young people willing and able and interested in rising to the call. Keep you posted
