Desert Voices Vol 23, Number 2
Late Summer 2010

Dear Friends,

Nevada Desert Experience's Late Summer 2010 issue of Desert Voices is available for viewing or printing from our website. I'm very happy to report that NDE founder, mentor and friend, Fr. Louis Vitale, OFM was released from prison after a 6 month sentence for taking a stand against torture trainings for Latin American military personnel at Ft. Benning Georgia. He's out in time to appear in court in Las Vegas on September 14 as a member of the Creech 14 who were arrested with us during the Sacred Peace Walk in 2009 at Creech Air Force Base. Then he has a trial in Santa Barbara for an arrest at Vandenberg. If you want to see him you may need to come for our September Desert Witness (see below). Because of delays in producing this newsletter, the two lead features are full of new issues and analyses; I hope you agree that the information is thought-provoking and inspiring.

Thank you for your ongoing interest and support. NO NUKES!
-Jim Haber, NDE Coordinator
