Good Friday Action at Livermore Lab

On Good Friday, April 18, 2014 people of good will, including from all the world's faith traditions, are invited to gather at the Livermore Laboratory at 7 AM. Come to the northwest corner of the nuclear weapons lab, at Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road in Livermore, CA. This year, the keynote speaker will be Kathy Kelly. Kelly will talk about her experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan and, in particular, how war has exacerbated poverty and displacement in Afghanistan where she is currently located. The Good Friday program, still in the planning stages, will also feature liturgical dance by Carla De Sola, a welcome and update on nuclear issues by Tri-Valley CAREs and war and peace "stations of the cross" on the way to the Lab's west gate, where those who choose will nonviolently risk arrest.

Following the program at Livermore Lab on Good Friday, there will be an action at Lockheed Martin, the makers of nuclear missiles and drones, in Sunnyvale, CA between Noon and 2 PM. Join the Pacific Life Community and others for a reflection and nonviolent action. The theme will be "Who is crucified here?" Participants will gather at the corner of North Matilda and 5th Ave. and walk to the main gate.

Location: Livermore Lab, northwest corner of Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road in Livermore, CA.
