Ventura County, CA Vigils at Port Hueneme Naval Base

CNV Ventura CA Vigil 1Ventura CA-Protestor and babyVentura County, California, was honored to host well-known peace activist Kathy Kelly during her tour of Southern California. She shared with us the work of the Afghan Peace Volunteers, who provided the inspiration for the blue scarves worn in many parts of the nation during CNV week.

The following day, a small but dedicated group — from Ventura County’s Veterans for Peace, Christian Peacemaker Teams, Citizens for Peaceful Resolutions, Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries, Maryknoll, and the Episcopal Peace Fellowship — joined together at the entrance to the local Naval Base in Port Hueneme to protest US militarism and call for a culture of peace and justice. This event included perhaps the nation’s youngest protester, Anaïs Janelle, only one week old at the time of the rally.
