A Journey in Support of the United Nations Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty includes San Luis Obispo!
A month-long journey from the West Coast to New York to raise awareness of the 5-year renewal of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty takes place this year from March 20 to April 27.
Two dozen young people from Japan, the Bay Area, and Germany will arrive in San Luis Obispo for two days on March 25th and 26th on their way from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
From Southern California they will go to Nevada and Arizona to visit areas of nuclear testing, uranium mining, and waste dumping. On the East Coast they will visit nuclear power plants and dumping sites in New York and end their journey at the United Nations, where they will join other peace organizations to lobby for an extension of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
They will arrive in San Luis Obispo on Wednesday, March 25th, where they will be welcomed at a gathering hosted by the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace. On the 26th they plan to walk with local volunteers from the gates of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant near Avila Beach to San Luis Obispo. After spending another night here they will leave in the morning of the 27th to be transported to Los Angeles.
The public is encouraged to join San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace in welcoming these visitors—to mark the end of the nuclear era, and create a nuclear-free future.
