Evening for Peace and Justice in Eureka, CA

Posted by Erin Bechtol

by Linda O’Hara-Scott  // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

We had the evening’s native person, Marva Jones-a Tolowa-Deeni-Yurok tribal member-do a chant for us and read her own prayer as the invocation for the evening;  Bryn Werren, the mistress of ceremonies, who did the announcing of events, gave a short history of the U.N.’s Declaration of Human Rights, as well as saying how this event was celebrated throughout the world; then, Linda O’Hara-Scott led the audience in reciting the Declaration of Human Rights by the U.N.  We had a speaker from Centro del Pueblo, Ruby Aguirre, talking about Measure K, a Sanctuary Proposal for all illegal immigrants in Humboldt County.  We had four song sets, who sang between events.  They were Leslie Quinn, Octavio Acosta, and Julio Torres, Don Marr and, the Raging Grannies singing songs of peace.  Kunle had five poets, reading their own original works.  They were:  Steven Bridenbaugh, Lori Susan, Brenda Perez with Julio Torres, Diane Johnson and Joe “Steelie” Shermis.  After this we held a silent candlelight vigil for all who have died in wars, victims of climate change and poverty, nuclear events, and for all victims of violence of any kind.
