Vets For Peace Golden Rule Project is a National Project of Veterans For Peace
We aim to advance Veterans For Peace opposition to nuclear weapons and war, and to do so in a dramatic fashion. We have recovered and restored the original peace boat, the Golden Rule, that set sail in 1958 to stop nuclear testing in the atmosphere, and which inspired many peace makers and peace ships that followed. The restored Golden Rule is voyaging once more, to show that a nuclear peace is possible, and that bravery and tenacity can overcome militarism.
On October 5, the Golden Rule will arrive in La Crosse. You are invited to greet the vets and participate by joining them at one or more events.
From 10:30 a.m. to noon, Meet the crew at Riverside Park.
12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Official welcome and proclamation by the Mayor; presentation about the boat's mission.
5:30 to 7:00 p.m., Presentation on the dangers of nuclear war at Pearl Street Books.
