Bedford Lyceum: Update on the March “Shot Heard Around the World” MA Peace Action

April 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 9:50 am

On April 16th from 10AM – 6 PM, Massachusetts Peace Action is planning a peaceful nonviolent walk around Hanscom Air Base to highlight the decision to locate the home for the Nuclear Command, Control and Communications there.
President Obama initiated at $1trillion dollar upgrade to the US nuclear weapons platform and President Trump is running with it. And part of that $1trillion is slated to come to Hanscom as the Base was chosen to be the Nuclear Command, Control and Communications Integration Directorate, a unit tasked with upgrading all the communications systems tying America’s strategic nuclear forces together. Massachusetts Peace Action along with several members of First Parish Bedford are planning a walk around the Base, the Shout Heard Around the World, in which we will call for nuclear abolition. 

In 1776, the shot heard around the world was fired within miles of Hanscom. In 2018, we will shout until the world hears us: nuclear disarmament is the way forward. Just like the Minutemen who had the audacity and courage to stand up to King George, we must stand up to President Trump and the war profiteers by demanding the trillions fund the social net not the war machine.
