The biggest demonstration on earth (until the global anti-Iraq war march of Feb 15, 2003) took place in New York on June 12, 1982, when one million people gathered in support of the second UN Special Session on Disarmament and to protest nuclear weapons.
New York City.
June 12, 1982:
The Great Peace March.
Sitting here. Typing.
Listening to the Grateful Dead sing Visions of Johanna.
Thinking about another vision that has been blinded.
Has gotten covered with blinders of shared complacency.
Forlorn acceptance that we cannot change things as they are.
With one million other souls.
June 12, 1982.
To stop the Nuclear Arms Race.
TO STOP THE MADNESS!
IT’S NOT TOO LATE.
IT’S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES!
