Photos from Submarine Dead Ahead (Re)Launch

A few photos from the recent re-launching of my 1991 book, Submarine Dead Ahead! Waging Peace in America’s Nuclear Colony (Harbour Publishing), about the work and vision of a local peace group in the 1980s, the Nanoose Conversion Campaign. 

Including photos of the familiar bright yellow “Warning” signs that went up in windows throughout the central Vancouver Island region whenever one of the US Navy’s nuclear submarines or warships was in port at the Nanoose underwater weapons testing facility at Nanoose Bay. And also a photo of the fabulous six-foot-tall banner of submarine and peace camp of tipis, painted by Gabriola artist Paul Grignon back in 1986 for the People’s Inquiry into CFMETR (Canadian Forces Maritime and Experimental Test Ranges at Nanoose Bay).

Thanks to the Nanaimo chapter of WILPF (Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom) for organizing the re-launch of this book and the lively discussion that followed about peace activism then and now.

Copies of the book are available locally from WILPF for those in Nanaimo (phone: 250-753-3015). Or from Harbour Publishing: http://www.harbourpublishing.com/title/SubmarineDeadAhead

Peace out!
Kim
