Please write to Judge Thapar to encourage leniency for the Oak Ridge 3, nonviolent protesters of nuclear weapons.
Dear VFP and Friends,
I am encouraging everyone to sign the Roots Action Petition above. It now has over 14,000 signatures! I know Sr. Megan well. She is a good woman who has worked for nuclear abolition and peace and justice for many years. She is 84 years old and I do not want her to die in prison even though she is willing to make this sacrifice. If we want to survive as a species we must rid the world of nuclear weapons. Thanks for signing and sharing this petition. Please also consider coming to Knoxville on February 18, 2014 to support Megan, Michael and Greg. Information inside. Paz, John Amidon

A Personal Invitation to my VFP and Peace Activist Friends
The above video was made for 2013. However aside from the new dates April 12-18, 2014 everythng else is very much the same. The 2013 Sacred Peace Walk was an amazing event and everything below is still heartfelt and true. I hope you will join us in 2014.
I just wanted to say a few words which I hope will encourage you to join our peace walk this year. There is no better place to be and little that is as important then working to rid the world of nuclear weapons. When you look at the historical record of nuclear "miscalculations, accidents and maddness", it is soon realized we are here by either pure luck or the grace of God. This does not have to be the case. South Africa rid itself of nuclear weapons, realizing how destructive it would be to continue on that path. Humanity can choose a wiser path.
Not only, the desert is awesome. The beauty, the night sky, the mountains and all that may be experienced is profoundly transformative. This is the reason why so many of us return year after year.
