Santa Fe Climate Vigil

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.25.15

By Bud Ryan

We attended an event at the Cathedral in Santa Fe on Thursday at noon commemorating Pope Francis’s address to Congress as well as his Environmental Encyclical Laudato Si.

We here in New Mexico over the next several months are going to be working on a Petition based on Article VI of the Nuclear NonProliferation Treaty to transform the National Labs at Los Alamos & Sandia to STOP working on nuclear weapons research & START working on things that can Benefit ALL New Mexicans, ALL Americans & Everybody on the Planet & Remove & Disarm the 1,914 nuclear weapons that are currently stored near the Albuquerque Airport. Look for it soon & we hope to get at least 10,000 signatures but hope for many, many more. That depends of course on how much work “We the People” are willing to do.
