Proposition One is a grassroots movement for disarmament of nuclear weapons and
the conversion of nuclear and other arms industries to provide for human and environmental needs.

The concept was proven viable by the victory of DC Initiative 37.
The bill
has continuously been introduced in Congress since 1994.
Now we are asking you to replicate the Voter Initiative Campaign across the entire country.

Stop the Grand Canyon uranium mines!!

It breaks my heart to think that the Colorado River will once again be polluted with radioactivity, this time by TOTALLY UNNECESSARY uranium mines on the sacred edge of the Grand Canyons.  See news story at

Let's figure out a way to stop this!  Ellen Thomas

At last I have returned to the land of the living....

Since I last posted, I've been 'slapped in the face' and 'hit in the solar plexus' (see Jon Stewart, 3/11/2010).

My mother died on 2/28, and my van died on 3/10, just as I'm about to take off for the Walk for Disarmament and Economic Conversion from DC to NY City NPT Review at the UN (see

But I'm soon to be back on the road after a $3,600 resurrection of the "NO WAR" van for the next leg of the Proposition One In 2010 Campaign, the "Walk For Nuclear Disarmament and Economic Conversion from DC to NYC," which is being organized by Jay Marx <> and Ethan Genauer <> - 202-682-4282

I have no idea how we'll pay for gas and repairs and food to New York, as we've exhausted all donations with this van repair.  We'll camp when necessary.  But as we have done from the beginning of the vigil in front of the White House, (June 3, 1981 until now, see, we are moving out on faith and hope.

Our plan after the Non-Proliferation Treaty events is to travel through New England.  We have strong support in Philadelpia, Pennsylvania, and Burlington, Vermont, but we need other venues along the way from DC to Maine.  Please let us know if you're interested in helping.

If you want to contribute with contacts, venues, logistical, financial, or other support to the campaign, please contact Jay Marx at <>, PO Box 27217, Washington, DC 20038 - 202-682-4282
