Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Parade
Join the “Peace People” Contingent proclaiming "War is Not the Answer"
Monday, January 18
Parade begins at 10 am at 4th St. and Hoover, Downtown L.V.
MLK’s prophetic voice is as frighteningly relevant today as when he preached against war 43 years ago. Nevada Desert Experience and Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service hope we are all inspired to heed his warning and challenge: "When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, militarism and economic exploitation are incapable of being conquered...Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism." Click here to view our lead banner. We will have a truck with us draped in peace flags and banners, providing a resting place for the weary. Also, we'll be broadcasting excerpts of MLK's speech "Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam."

MLK Celebration & Movie Night: Citizen King (2004, 115 minutes)
Sunday, January 24, 6:00 pm
1420 W. Bartlett Ave.

Citizen King originally aired as part of the PBS series "The American Experience." It is a great account of King as a human being showing some regular journalistic footage but also some home movie-type scenes and stills that are priceless. Citizen King focuses on the last five years of King's life. The eyewitnesses and biographers/historians include some antagonistic folks from Birmingham & FBI-types who still have grudges and "issues" with MLK. It does give a variety of contemporary colleagues valuable chances to put some of the events of those years into context.

Report from Cairo: Gaza Freedom March
Monday, January 25, 7:00 pm
1420 W. Bartlett Ave.

[NOTE: This event isn't an official NDE event]
When the Egyptian government refused to allow 1,300-plus Gaza Freedom marchers to travel from Cairo to Gaza at the end of December, the marchers turned Cairo into a five-day movable protest. The Cairo events got big play in the Egyptian media for days and may have shed as much light on Gaza's plight as the planned march would have done. Activist-journalist Judith Mahoney Pasternak, writer for the New York Indypendent and member of the national board of the War Resisters League, was there and will present a short account and slide show of the Gaza Freedom March in Cairo.


Feb. 1: Afternoon vigil at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
In honor of Sr. Megan Rice's 80th birthday! (Carpool from NDE's Office, leaving at 2pm.)
Drone strikes controlled by crews at Creech continue to kill countless civilians and any hope for peace in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

Feb. 3: A Memorial Film Screening of Howard Zinn: You Can't be Neutral on a Moving Train, 7 pm, Francis & Clare Center. The life and times of historian, activist and author of the best-selling classic, A People's History of the United States at the offices and home of the NDE Office.

Feb. 23:Tuesday, afternoon vigil at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
Drone strikes controlled by crews at Creech continue to kill countless civilians and any hope for peace in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. In fact, such attacks are worsening. So many articles report on civilian deaths and the occasional intended assassination (didn't that use to be a shameful word?) that it is hard to keep updating our resource page on drones.
If you want to carpool with us, we’ll leave 1420 W. Bartlett Ave. about 2:30 pm. Best to let us know you’re coming so we’ll look for you. Let us know if you want to be notified when we impromptu vigil at Creech, the NTS or in Las Vegas.

Feb. 24: Wednesday, Film Screening: The People Speak, 7:00 p.m.
Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, the documentary feature film THE PEOPLE SPEAK gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice.

Narrated by acclaimed historian Howard Zinn, who just passed away, and based on his best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and, with Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History, THE PEOPLE SPEAK illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.

Location: 1420 W. Bartlett Ave., 89106, just east of MLK Blvd. and 5 blocks north of Lake Mead Blvd. in the historic "West Side." Film screenings are in the Pace e Bene house to the rear of the courtyard, past the Peace Pole.

Feb. 25:Thursday, morning vigil at Federal Courthouse in Las Vegas (333 Las Vegas Blvd S.), 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.
The weekly peace vigil at the Las Vegas courthouse will be enhanced in solemn commemoration of this sad milestone by the display of a pair of boots for each soldier from Nevada who has been killed in Afghanistan. The boots are symbolic and each pair will have a tag with the name of on of the soldiers, their age and hometown. The boots display is part of the larger Eyes Wide Open exhibit started by the American Friends Service Committee which began as an Iraq memorial, but also includes casualties in Afghanistan.

MARCH 2010

March 2: Tuesday, Film Screening: Death and Taxes, 7:00 p.m.
Produced by the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, twenty-eight people offer their motivations for
and methods of resisting the war machine with their tax money. This tightly paced 30-minute film introduces viewers to war tax refusal and redirecting tax dollars to peace, with music by Sharon Jones and the DapKings, Antibalas, Rude Mechanical Orchestra, and First Strike Theatre’s version of “Don’t Pay Taxes” by Charlie King. Is anything worth a tangle with the IRS? You bet! This year's edition of the annual "Pie Chart" analysis of the federal budget co-produced by NWTRCC and the War Resisters League will be on hand, as will copies of the dvd and other tax resistance materials will be available.

Location: 1420 W. Bartlett Ave., 89106, just east of MLK Blvd. and 5 blocks north of Lake Mead Blvd. in the historic "West Side." Film screenings are in the Pace e Bene house to the rear of the courtyard, past the Peace Pole.

March 29-April 5: Monday to Monday, NDE's Annual Sacred Peace Walk
We can't list all of the activities that are part of the Sacred Peace Walk here. I am pleased by the participation in the walk this year by some very deep, long-term activists, including NDE co-founder Br. David Buer ofm, Fr. Steve Kelly sj, and Priestess and Poet, T. Thorn Coyle. Local artists and musicians Abbi Spinner McBride and Joshua Levin will also collaborate to help us remain powerfully uplifted with devotional song and rhythm. More details and background are on the Peace Walk page and the Peace Walk Schedule page. WE NEED LOCAL HELPERS AND FINANCIAL SPONSORSHIP OF WALKERS! Special, advance gratitude to the Las Vegas Catholic Worker community and Candace Ross of the Sekhmet Temple in Cactus Springs. Contact the office to plug in!

March 30: Tuesday, 8:00 a.m.
Dedication of the Sacred Peace Walk
Join peace walkers and members of the Las Vegas interfaith community for a ceremony of oration and celebration as the Nevada Desert Experience Sacred Peace Walk embarks on a week-long sacred pilgrimage 62-miles through the desert to the Nevada Test Site.

We walk in the footsteps of a long legacy of peace walkers and spiritual leaders to draw attention to the nuclear dangers that continue to threaten our sacred planet and the community of life. Please join us in transforming fears into compassion and apathy into action in Nevada Desert Experience's 2010 Sacred Peace Walk. Participate in one event, or walk with us for a day or more.

Check the Sacred Peace Walk schedule page for details and directions. To find out where the walk is at a given moment, call NDE Coordinator Jim Haber on his cell: 415-828-2506, or the NDE office at 702-646-4814 or try following us on our newly established Twitter Feed: <NVDesertExp>!

APRIL 2010

April 1: Thursday: 7:00 p.m.
Ritual of Peace, Forgiveness and Healing
Please join with Nevada Desert Experience's Sacred Peace Walk at the Temple of Goddess Spirituality for a ritual of peace, forgiveness and healing.

Ritual leaders include Sekhmet Temple High Priestess Candace Ross, Poet and Priestess T. Thorn Coyle, the Vortex's own Alchemical Fire Mistress Abigail Spinner McBride, and Jewish Wiccan Catholic Worker Jim Haber (also of the Vortex tribe). Peace and reverence live within the temple, welcoming all that come. Just down the highway from the Nevada Test Site where over 1000 nuclear bombs were exploded, the temple was dedicated to the cause of peace and nuclear abolition.

Journeying in trance we will “See and feel, suffer and heal--the fires that warm and the fires that destroy.” The temple is located at Cactus Springs, 2.5 miles after Indian Springs on U.S. 95 N or just past milepost 123 on US 95 S. For detailed driving directions, please visit (http://www.sekhmettemple.com/drivingpage.htm)

April 2: Friday: 10:00 a.m.
No More War Victims Stations of the Cross Reenactment
Convene with Sacred Peace Walkers and members of the Las Vegas interfaith community for a Good Friday devotion and reflection on suffering and the costs of war. The ceremony combines the traditional template of fourteen stations of the cross and words from scripture with contemporary images and thoughts on the horrors of violence and war. Fittingly, we will be commemorating war victims outside of Creech Air Force Base, the control center for unmanned aerial vehicles, named Predators & Reapers on their surveillance and bombing missions in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Creech Air Force Base is located on US 95 at Indian Springs.

April 2: Friday: 7:00 p.m.
Devotional Chants, Movement and Rhythm
Priestess and Poet T. Thorn Coyle and local drummer and anthropologist Joshua Levin of the Mythfits will lead Sacred Peace Walkers and others in devotional chanting and music-making at the Indian Springs Community Center. Using music and sacred words from different traditions we will harness our creative energies to lift our spirits in joyous fellowship and renew our commitment to peace. The Community Center is located at 719 W Gretta Lane in Indian Springs. Heading north on US95, go left on either McFarland Ave or Sky Rd and then go right on Gretta.

April 4: Sunday: Dawn
Western Shoshone Sunrise Ceremony
Sunrise Ceremony led by Johnnie Bobb of the Yomba Shoshone Tribe and Western Shoshone National Council, and also a member of the Nevada Desert Experience National Council.

Fire is lit before first light in the circle at the Peace Camp across US95 from Mercury and the Nevada Test Site. NDE is grateful to be welcomed by the Western Shoshone on THEIR land, Newe Sogobia, as we come to add our prayers to theirs for healing for the land and an end to work on nuclear weapons and all that that entails.

April 4: Sunday: 10:00 a.m.
Easter Mass and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
Br. David Buer OFM, Fr. Steve Kelly, SJ and Sr. Megan Rice, SHCJ will lead Sacred Peace Walkers and members of the Las Vegas interfaith community in an Easter Mass ceremony and subsequent rally.

Having arrived at the Peace Camp at the end of the Sacred Peace Walk, participants will celebrate resurrection and the transformation of the Nevada Test Site into a place of peace and positive energy. We will each contemplate our own dedication and responsibility to peace as some will chose to act in civil resistance to nuclear testing and development after the Mass and rally. The Peace Camp is located on the West side of Hwy 95 at Mercury exit.

April 4, 1968 is when Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. We will read and reflect on his words, and pray that we may emulate his devotion to faith, truth and justice.

Brando and Otter write and perform incendiary spoken word. Passionate, articulate, riotous, these artists currently live and work in Chicago. They are coming on tour to help with the very important project of cultural change through artistic expression, as well as to travel and learn more about nuclear weapons and power.

Crews at Creech control the drones used in these expanding wars, including killing civilians in remote controlled assassination attacks.

Ramsey Clark, a former Marine, earned his J.D. from the University of Chicago. Clark served as U.S. Attorney General under the presidential administrations of Kennedy of Johnson. Throughout his tenure as Attorney General, he focused on social issues and civil rights including prison reform and the elimination of the death penalty. For decades, Clark has consistently condemned American foreign policy and its related military campaigns, from the Vietnam War, to the Iraq War, to the broader War on Terror. His clients have included Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein.

Bill Quigley is the Legal Director for the Center for Constitutional Rights, a national legal and educational human rights organization. He previously taught law at Loyola University New Orleans and has been an active public interest lawyer since 1977 with a wide range of public interest organizations.

Col. Ann Wright, a former United States Army colonel publicly resigned from the U.S. State Department in direct protest of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. During her State Department career, Wright served as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan in 2001. In 2008, Ann co-authored the book, Dissent, Voices of Conscience: Government Insiders Speak Out Against the War in Iraq. She was a passenger on the Challenger 1, which along with the Mavi Marmara, was part of the Gaza flotilla in May.

Kathy Kelly co-coordinates Voices for Creative Nonviolence, a campaign to end U.S. military and economic warfare. In 2009, Voices formed a small delegation to visit Pakistan, aiming to learn more about the effects of U.S. drone warfare on the civilian population and to better understand consequences of U.S. foreign policy in pressing for Pakistani military offensives to dislodge Taliban fighters. Kathy’s most recent trip to the region, in 2010, included a visit to Afghanistan, focusing on surgical centers serving victims of war. Kelly is one of the Creech 14.

He’s a rabble-rouser, and an outspoken critic of the military and of global political systems, whose revolution comes through his skill as a guitarist and songwriter." -Anchorage Press, April 14, 2010
