The stage has chaged many times... But America's role has not changed.' - Lyndon Johnson, My Vision for America." The bottom of the poster reads in blue lettering, "'War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.' - John Fitzgerald Kennedy/ Port Chicago vigil - continuous witness against war since Hiroshima Day, 6 August 1966. Fifty-eight citizens have been arrested for confronting the war machine at America's major munitions port (the Concord Naval Weapons station at San Francisco's Suisun Bay which ships 90% of all military explosives including napalm.) The defendants are now putting the governement on trial for violations of the 1954 Geneva Accords, the United Nations Charter, The Neuremberg Precedents, and the United States Constitution."
