On Sunday, May 2nd, WPSR members, supporters and allies gathered at Seattle University’s Quad, listened to some great speakers including Dr. David and Reverend Anne Hall, and then marched with approximately 200 friends and colleagues to downtown. This event was organized by Ground Zero Center for Non-Violent Action. Along with the marchers and dozens of handheld signs, a dozen or so held tight to a single replica trident missile.
