Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule
SATURDAY BLOCK F | 9:30 am
In 1958, four Quaker peace activists set sail for the Marshall Islands--the US nuclear testing zone--to alert the world to the devastating effects of the bomb on people and the environment. When the crew was arrested and jailed in Hawaii, public outcry for their release sparked a movement that led to the signing of the Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963.
Sixty years later, Veterans for Peace has restored this historic wooden boat and embarked on a global mission to end the arms race. Shot on board the Golden Rule during a protest of the Navy's Air and Sea show in San Diego Bay, the film features interviews of veterans whose stories illuminate the true costs of warfare.
