Taking It To The Streets, part deux

Mrs. Dada's been very busy the past two weekends, remembering!

Last weekend Mrs. Dada was in Santa Fe on Friday and Los Alamos on Saturday to attend events preceding the 65th anniversary of the only commercial-industrial strength use of nuclear weapons in war: those dropped on Hiroshima, August 6, and three days later on Nagasaki, Japan, August 9, 1945.

Below is her YouTube video of (Col..) Ann Wright, retired, most noted for having resigned from the State Department in protest of the U.S. March 2003 invasion of Iraq, speaking in Los Alamos last Saturday, July 31st.


This past Friday (8/6/2010) Mrs. Dada was in downtown El Paso, outside the new federal building remembering the victims of Hiroshima.


On Monday, a remembrance ceremony will be held in the same place  for the 65th anniversary of Nagaski's devastation.

I've heard Ann Wright speak.... & this is great to hear of the *Think outside the Bomb* campaign.

A local peace activist wrote a guest editorial just before the Hiroshima Nagasaki memorial event they have & today some person wrote an editorial saying just singing Kumbaya by the fireside is not going to cut it - that there always have been wars & there always will be wars.

Hello! Perpetuating that mindset is exactly how we continue to go down that path of destruction.

Wish I could send him this video & encourage him to think outside the bomb.

Viva Ann Wright! And Viva Mrs. Dada! Thanks so much for making the trip to attend this rally...and for sharing this video so we, the people, can also glimpse a part of the action. It was quite touching when someone from Hiroshima was present and came forward to address the group!
