Sogorea Te at Dusk
VALLEJO, CALIFORNIA - The Sacred Sites Peace Walk for a Nuclear Free World is part of a world wide effort to end proliferation of nuclear weapons, to halt further construction of nuclear reactor facilities. The recent earthquake and tsunami in early March in Japan has reminded us of the urgency of this issue which put the whole planet at risk.
For decades, Indigenous communities have been sacrificed to fuel the nuclear industry from the beginning to the end. Native peoples along with victims of Fukushima are walking and educating communities along the way of the dangers of the nuclear industry on our earth and its children.
Supporters are urged to participate on the last day of this walk, that began in San Luis Obisbo at Diablo Canyon on October 21st and we will end at Sogorea Te on Sunday November 6th.
Walkers will meet at the Dead Fish Restaurant on the South Side of the Carquinez Bridge at 9 am and will walk through the city of Vallejo to Sogorea Te for a ending prayer at Noon, and then to Glen Cove Park for end of walk.
Sogorea Te was the site of a long demonstration by a group of San Francisco-based American Indians to protect sacred sites there. The group held 109-day spiritual encampment and won that battle during the spring of this year.
