In the past two months, the Bay Area’s Street Spirit Newspaper, a publication of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) that reports extensively on homelessness and the struggle for social justice, posted a series of interviews they have done with author and activist Jim Douglass. 

The interviews highlight stories of resistance to nuclear weapons as well as the practice of nonviolent resistance.  With under one month to go before the anniversaries of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, these articles provide a reminder why the struggle to ban nuclear weapons remains crucial to humanities survival.  

You can find a link to each interview on the Street Spirit Website here.

If you’d like to take part in a public witness against nuclear weapons, you can join Campaign Nonviolence and many others at the Los Alamos, NM Peace Vigils August 6th and 9th, part of the Campaign Nonviolence National Conference, which will also be livestreamed online for free.  Learn more about the livestream schedule here.
