People Power Wave

August 6, 2012 - August 9, 2012
Kansas City, Missouri

Come to Kansas City, Missouri to support opposition to the new nuclear weapons plant proposed to be build.

August 7 is our last chance to reach people while they're voting -- and those that vote in this high-turnout state-wide primary election are exceedingly likely to be voting in November.

We can anticipate being badly outspent. Being a grassroots group with limited resources may seem like a weakness, but it can also be one of our greatest strengths. The no-vote government agencies and corporations have one kind of power, but we have another. And one power we have is person-to-person contact, to frame the issue first, and to put the focus where it belongs – before the barrage of ads with distractions.

This coincides nicely with the annual Hiroshima-Nagasaki anniversaries, a high point for nuclear weapons protest. If you come to Kansas City for the three-day event, you’ll be commemorating those tragedies in the best possible way – taking effective action to say: never again!

If you want to come participate in just part of the action, that would also be quite welcome; the election day is the most important day to have a large number of leafletters.
