The Stop the Bombs campaign is a series of anti-nuclear weapons events sponsored by the (OREPA) Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance. We primarily focus on the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Plant in Oak Ridge, TN. While we specifically advocate US adherence to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and to Article VI of the US Constitution, we also advocate nuclear nonproliferation at the international level.
This is a simple reminder that your donations play an integral role in the sustainability and growth of the Stop The Bombs movement. We want to thank those who have contributed to the cause and ask others who may be interested to consider a small donation as well. Our mission will never change and we don’t waver in our ideals. We hope that the future is a bright one and we welcome like minded individuals to come out and show support even in a non-monetary fashion.
Our upcoming stops include the following:
July 2-3 French Lick, Indiana
We will have our usual tent set up and all members are encouraged to attend. James Lighty will perform some spoken word and health expert Brendon Thadeus will demonstrate some security software used by bloggers and journalists who need a fake ip simply to protect their liberty when posting.
July 24 Sherevport, Louisiana
Elmer (Slim) Jackson is going to give us an exclusive look inside the ’Cooking For The Cause’ non violent future of cooking series. We will be setting up the day before the event and would greatly appreciate any volunteers that may be able to help us.
August 3-5 Grant Park, Illinois (Lollapalooza)
While attendance and entry into the show is not free, we will have discount vouchers for every member that stops by the tent as well as a surprise celebrity appearance that won’t be revealed until the show starts;) This is a festival of non-violence that the Stops The Bombs coalition has been attending since the venue became a mainstay of Grant Park, Chicago in 2005. If you are going to stop out and see a STB demonstration, this would be the one to attend. Great music, gourmet food, great energy.
Beginning in September we will be voting on the leadership for the upcoming year. We will have self addressed forms mailed out to existing members before the month is over and the positions include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and two support staff members. Leadership positions are held for two consecutive years and you cannot serve consecutive terms in the same position. Allison and Grace have done a fantastic job to date and we have enjoyed record member growth with the two of them at the helm.
We want to thank all new and old members for their continued support. Without you, the message vanishes into thin air and the world loses site of what is really important. Nuclear nonproliferation is something that all nations should continue to support and the message of killing for peace is a message that endangers our lives and the lives of our children. Continue to meet violence with non violence and be steadfast in your ideals and morals and the rest will always take care of itself.
