Rally and March called to Save Nuke Free Zone Olympia Rally at the Knoll, Capitol Lake Park Tuesday, September 9th
WHAT IS THIS MADNESS
The City Council wants to REPEAL our Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance so they can contract with NUCLEAR WEAPONS INVESTORS that threaten to bring WORLD ANNIHILATION by giving their money to the US NUCLEAR WEAPONS INDUSTRY
The Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance was adopted - with great support by the members of this community - in August, 2005 at the 60th Anniversary of the US nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It stops the city from contracting with businesses that invest in the nuclear weapons industry.
Stop THIS MADNESS and come to the Rally, then March to City Hall in time to WELCOME the council members to the first council meeting they've had to attend since announcing they would vote to repeal the ordinance - and then went on vacation.
Rally Called by Members of Nuke Free Oly, NI-NWI-WA (No Interests in Nuclear Weapons Investors or World Annihilation)
all forms of creative protest welcome welcome welcome bring noise machines and musical instruments mushroom clouds sunflowers and prop nuclear bombs whatever you imagine the end is near.
I am saddened to read that the NFZ ordinance might soon be repealed. The ordinance imposes no harm, and it opens discussions between a few nuclear-armed countries and Olympia. Those discussions might not occur without the ordinance. Olympia continues to do business with corporations that are invested in nuclear despite the ordinance. The port of Olympia continues to accept US military shipments despite the ordinance. The bombing of Japan helped China grow to become one of the most successful communist nations and enabled Indonesia to become a muslim haven despite the ordinance. Meanwhile the US economy is declining and the attitude towards nuclear weapons is softening. Why? What are the implications of repealing the NFZ? How can this be good? I challenge supporters of repealing the NFZ to show the statistics that demonstrate why the repeal is financially or statistically warranted.
