Peace Action’s affiliate in the Kansas City area, PeaceWorks Kansas City, is one of the leaders of the struggle to prevent a new factory to build the non-nuclear components for U.S. nuclear weapons. I plan to visit Kansas City in mid-October and hope to be able to learn more and support the cause.
National Peace Action board member Larry Wittner has an article on this struggle on History News Network, and Mother Jones also had a piece on this by Adam Weinstein as well.
Finally, a short video of KC Councilman Ed Ford arguing in favor of the ballot initiative organized by KC Peace Planters.
More soon about how we can all support the KC Peace Planters!
