      EVENT DETAILS
      Potluck for Peace Pilgrims

      We will hold a potluck and get together for the Peace Pilgrimage from Asheville to Oak Ridge July 30 – August 6, 2017. This will start at 5:30 PM at Asheville Friends Meeting and the public is invited.

      The atom bomb started in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, when the Y12 Plant produced the highly enriched uranium fuel for Little Boy, the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan. Seventy- two years later, Y12 is still in the bomb business. Current plans call for a new bomb plant, the Uranium Processing Facility, to be built there to manufacture the thermonuclear cores and cases for nuclear warheads and bombs. The UPF bomb plant is the flagship facility for the “modernization” of the US nuclear weapons complex. This 8-day pilgrimage will arrive in Oak Ridge on August 6, to coincide with the events scheduled there by the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (OREPA) remembering the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima in 1945. Our pilgrimage raises a voice opposed to wars and in favor of the abolition of all nuclear weapons and a world beyond war. This pilgrimage will leave from Pack Square, Vance Monument at 9 AM.
