Red Cedar Friends Meeting
1400 Turner St, Lansing
Come meet the crew of Golden Rule sailing the original peace boat around the country to bring attention to the need to eliminate nuclear weapons. While the boat is in Detroit, the crew will visit Lansing.
Come learn the history and how we can work to eliminate nuclear weapons!
In 1958, anti-nuclear weapons activists were arrested to stop the Golden Rule from sailing to obstruct atmospheric U.S. nuclear weapons tests in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Resulting protests led to the passage of the 1963 Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, halting atmospheric testing.
The Golden Rule and her crew inspired the later actions by the ships of Greenpeace and the Sea Shepherds.
