History & 2018 Voyage of Golden Rule info
In 1958 the Golden Rule was sailed by 4 Quaker peace activists toward the Marshall Islands in an attempt to interfere with nuclear bomb tests. The project was instrumental in raising public awareness of radiation in the atmosphere; put pressure on President Kennedy to sign the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963; and inspired the start of Greenpeace.
Restored from 2010 to 2015 by Veterans For Peace, Quakers and others, the newly rebuilt Golden Rule sails for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future. For three years they have stopped at dozens of ports to give presentations and display messages of peace in contrast to the Air and Sea Show and other military demonstrations and celebrations of machines of war.

The crew of the Golden Rule will sail out of San Diego June 1, headed to Hawaii. Next year they sail to the Marshall Islands in time for the 65th anniversary of the Castle Bravo nuclear test on March 1. Then after sailing to Guam and Okinawa they will be in Japan for the 75thanniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
All along the way, the Golden Rule team will talk with people about how to stop the possibility of nuclear war and create a peaceful, sustainable future

More information about the history of this first peace boat, its mission, and plans to engage with communities around the Pacific to counter the growing rhetoric between the US and North Korea can be found at  vfpgoldenrule.org & www.facebook.com/GoldenRulePeaceBoat/

[SDCPJ] End War in Yemen

From: United for Peace & Justice <info@actionnetwork.org>
Date: March 5, 2018 at 12:23:56 PM PST
Subject: End War in Yemen
Reply-To: Info.ufpj@gmail.com

Action Network Email A vote we CAN WIN!


Our tax dollars are triggering the worst humanitarian crisis on the globe — and we have a chance to stop it. For years, the U.S. has been quietly supporting Saudi Arabia's brutal campaign driving more than 8 million Yemenis to the brink of famine. Our government gives Saudi Arabia bombs and planes. Our troops even deliver fuel to Saudi jets in midair while they conduct bombings.

Now Vermont progressive Senator Bernie Sanders and constitutional conservative Senator Mike Lee of Utah have introduced a resolution to cut off U.S. support for this illegal war. Because Bernie's resolution declares that the war in Yemen violates the Constitution, it's guaranteed a vote on the Senate floor within days. That's why UFPJ has joined a massive coalition of progressive partners to win this vote. But we need you to get your Senators on board. Click here to send them your message. NEXT: follow-up with a phone call—see the sample call script below.

This is a vote we MUST win!

Thank you for all you do!

The UFPJ Coordinating Committee

Sample Call Script:

Hello,

I am a constituent of Senator _______________ and I am calling to ask [him/her] to support S.J.Res. 54 to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

Over eight million people are facing famine as the result of my tax dollars supporting the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's civil war. S.J.Res.54 is a bipartisan, privileged resolution invoking the War Powers Resolution. It requires a vote on ending U.S. military support for this war.

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor and vote YES on the Sanders-Lee resolution to ensure that our nation stops causing suffering in a country already devastated by conflict, cholera, and famine.

Thank you.

Help us continue to do this critical work and more-- make a donation to UFPJ today.
