Campaign Nonviolence, Occupella, and other Musicians Sing for Peace in San Francisco BART Station!

On Tuesday 9/22 activists gathered at the Montgomery Street BART Station to sing for peace and support the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions. 

Occupella organizes informal public singing at Bay Area marches and at BART stations. They sing to promote peace, justice, and an end to corporate domination, stop violence and support the Black Lives Matter movement.  Like  Campaign Nonviolence,  they work to “connect the dots” of war, environmental destruction, racism, poverty and other key issues.

Later in the week Michael Stone (right), who was inspired by Campaign Nonviolence’s Week of Actions, reached out to passengers at the  Montgomery BART Station with flyers and conversations about Campaign Nonviolence. These actions, which come from the heart of individuals, are powerful, and Michael was able to engage many otherwise hurried commuters about CNV.
