The Sailboat That Takes On Nuclear Weapons

The sails are red, but the sailboat is named Golden Rule.  And the peace sign is not just decoration, it represents the boat's mission. 

Veterans For Peace uses the boat to press the case for the end of nuclear weapons.  The boat itself is a recreation of a boat that sank nearly ten years ago, and its creation is the subject of the documentary film "The Rebirth of the Golden Rule," showing soon in the Rogue Valley.  Zoe Byrd is a crew member and VFP's ambassador for the project and our guest, along with Dan Davis from the Rogue Valley branch of VFP and Michael Niemann from Peace House.
