Peace Boat “GOLDEN RULE” at Waterfront Park

Thursday June 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm


39 foot, two masted, wooden ketch launched in the Pacific Ocean in 1958. A crew of Quaker associates sailed toward the Marshall Islands with the intent to prevent atmospheric nuclear weapons testing. The US Coast Guard stopped the vessel in Honolulu, arresting her skipper, Albert Bigelow, who had served as an officer in the United States Navy.

The Golden Rule is currently following a “Great Loop” route, in the East. It has navigated rivers to the Gulf of Mexico, Key West, Cuba and is sailing the Atlantic Ocean coast.

Thursday, at 11:30AM crew members and local peace activists will walk from Waterfront Park to the BIW Administration building on Washington Street to demand an end to the building of nuclear-capable Aegis Destroyers and to share hope for a future without nuclear weapons.

At 4:30 there will be a screening of “Making Waves” in the Freight Shed, 27 Commercial Street.
