Historic Sailboat Project Supports UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons

Golden Rule S/V Crew member and Golden Rule Project Ambassador, Zoe Byrd, will show the 25-minute documentary, “Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule about four Quaker peace activists, led by Navy veteran Albert Bigelow, who in 1958 set sail to the Marshall Islands influencing public demand that ended underwater, atmospheric, and outer space nuclear bomb tests in 1963.  The historic peace boat later sank, in 2010, and was rebuilt in Humboldt Bay, California.  The Golden Rule, a Project of Veterans For Peace, is once again “Sailing for a Nuclear-Free World and a Peaceful, Sustainable Future”.

Paired with Making Waves, at this screening, is the documentary short Phoenix of Hiroshima – An Odyssey Interrupted about Golden Rule sister sailing vessel: The Phoenix of Hiroshima, which was able to make the voyage to the Marshall Island nuclear test zone in 1958, after the crew of the Golden Rule was jailed.

The Golden Rule Project is preparing for an epic voyage around the Pacific – to Hawaii, the Marshall Islands, Guam, Okinawa, Korea, Japan and more.   The 2019 crossing to Hawaii will take about a month.

The Pacific voyage will bring attention to the ongoing effects of nuclear bomb testing in the Pacific, and to the environmental and human impacts of hundreds of military bases in the Pacific Islands.   The team plans to be in Japan in August 2020 for the 75thanniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, then sail back to California in the spring and summer of 2021.

With tensions so high between nuclear armed nations, it is more important than ever to bring a message of peace into the Pacific.  “The possibility of nuclear war today is all too real,” says Gerry Condon of Veterans For Peace. “It is time to abolish nuclear weapons once and for all. The U.S. can show leadership by being the first nuclear power to sign the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.”

Come learn about what you can do to support the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty and the total elimination of nuclear weapons.

Press interviews encouraged!
