Come join PeaceWorks for their annual Memorial Day walk/ride/die-in. We do a 10-mile walk/ride from the old nuclear weapons parts plant to the new one. It's a chance to call for a world free from all nuclear weapons! Our program and die-in focuses on the many deaths related to contaminants from the making of parts for nuclear weapons at Bannister Federal Complex. We'd love to have you join us for the 10 mile walk, last mile of the walk or for the program/die-in at the end.
Here's a schedule of what the day will look like. Call/email with questions...
7:45 am Park on Lydia (1 block east of Troost, just south of Bannister)
8 am Meet 1 block E of Lydia on Bannister
8:15 am Begin walk/ride
11 am or so Meet at Prospect and Mo. Hwy. 150, begin last mile of walk
Noon or so Meet at 14510 Botts Rd., north of Mo. Hwy. 150, for program and die-in. One of our speakers and die-in participants will be para-teacher Debbie Penniston, whose husband died 8 1/2 years ago from brain cancer after working decades at the old site at BFC for making parts for nuclear weapons.
