Las Vegas Promotes Nonviolence

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.03.16

By Robert Majors

This year we combined our efforts with NDE (Nevada Desert Experience) to put together a weekend of events and share the ideas of nonviolence with the community. We started with some discussion on Saturday about the nuclear weapons and drones in Nevada. Sunday was our Campaign Nonviolence public training to discuss CARA and the environmental violence we are seeing in our world today, including the support of the Standing Rock protectors up north.

On Monday we had a Nonviolent Direct Action at the Nevada National Security Site and Creech AFB. There was good discussion throughout the entire weekend and the idea of nonviolence was greatly embraced even by the guards at the test site who said “Violence only begets more violence.” He was referring to some riots that were linked to the Black Lives Matter Protest, where he also stated that is not our job (as protesters), to which I reminded him of our intent, dismantling our nuclear arsenal. I hear good things from Standing Rock encouraging Nonviolent Direct Action!!! I look forward to supporting them, they need it, as do all indigenous people who care for our home.
