Festival of Hope for Clare Grady

On Sunday, February 7th, at 4 pm EST, you are invited to join us for a virtual Festival of Hope for Clare Grady before she reports to Alderson Federal Prison in W. Virginia on February 10. Clare is the sixth of the Kings Bay Plowshares 7 to begin her sentence for her part in the nonviolent, symbolic disarming of Georgia’s Trident nuclear weapons. 

Clare has invited speakers who challenge different aspects of Rev. Dr. King's triplets, racism (white supremacy), materialism (global capitalism), and militarism (global military dominance).
Speakers include a Seneca leader working in western New York, Agnes Williams, and a Diné leader, Leona Morgan, from the Navajo Nation, working in New Mexico and Arizona to stop uranium production and dumping on their lands; Irish Parliamentarian, Clare Daly, a co-defendant in an Irish trial of civil resistance to US warplanes refueling at Shannon Airport; a taped greeting from Setsuko Thurlow, a Hiroshima survivor who has worked tirelessly to end nuclear weapons and been instrumental in the enactment of the Treaty on Prohibition to Nuclear Weapons that went into force last week; Professor Russell Rickford, Cornell University historian of the Black Freedom Struggle and the Black Radical Tradition and an organizer with the Democratic Socialists of America; Emma O'Grady, writer, and actor from Co. Galway; Rev. Bill Wylie-Kellermann, Detroit theologian, author, nonviolent community activist and civil resister to water shut-offs, will give a closing prayer.
Please RSVP for the Zoom information. You can also watch the event on the CODEPINK YouTube channel, on the Kings Bay Plowshares YouTube channel, and on the Kings Bay Plowshares Facebook page.
