Peace Fleet 2016

Tuesday, August 2, 2016 - 12:00pm
Peace Fleet 2016
August 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
"The Peace Fleet meets the Navy’s Parade of (WAR) Ships in Seattle’s Elliott Bay (near Pier 66) on Tuesday, August 2nd in a water-based nonviolent protest against the glorification of weapons of war at the Seattle Seafair festival. This year the Peace Fleet will be joined with the original peace ship, the Golden Rule, that set sail in 1958 to the South Pacific to stop nuclear testing in the atmosphere, and which inspired the many peace makers and peace ships that followed.
See http://www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org
Other peace activists will meet on land at Waterfront Park at Piers 57 to 59 on the Seattle waterfront at the same time for a nonviolent demonstration against weapons of war.
What: Peace activists at Seafair. This is the fifteenth year for this demonstration.
When: Tuesday, August 2, noon, Peace Fleet in Elliott Bay. Demonstration on land at Waterfront Park at Piers 57 to 59 at 1 PM.
Where:  Elliott Bay, near Pier 66.  Demonstration on land at Waterfront Park.
For the fifteenth year, peace activists will address the public display of warships and warplanes in our community.  The Golden Rule will be open to the public in Bell Harbor Marina from August 3-6, while moored several hundred feet from Navy warships.
Why would we demonstrate for peace at a Seattle maritime festival?  Because the celebration of warships in our harbor helps bring about the normalcy of modern war. The fleet arrival at Seafair is a public relations and recruiting event for the U.S. Navy.  Previous years have brought Trident nuclear submarines complete with nuclear warheads and Navy warships used to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles in the first and second Wars on Iraq and the War on Afghanistan.  The fleet is displayed for four days in downtown Seattle at tremendous cost to taxpayers while crucial social services in education, health care, and transportation are being cut for lack of funds.For more information and to learn how to participate (either on the water or dockside), send an email to info@gzcenter.org."

"This year on August 6th, as we have every year since 1984, …. we will gather at Green Lake in Seattle for our annual lantern floating ceremony honoring victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war.
From Hiroshima to Hope has been created by local peace, faith and community organizations every year since 1984, The Seattle event is the oldest and largest anywhere outside Japan. More than a thousand attendees participated again last year. The 2016 From Hiroshima to Hope Planning Committee welcomes all those who wish to come and experience the feeling of community, the music and the sight of a thousand lanterns drifting on the lake. It offers the hope that we can resolve international conflicts without violence, and learn the habit and technique of living in peace with all our neighbors on this earth...." http://fromhiroshimatohope.org/
