January 2013 through May 2015
ALDERMASTON & BURGHFIELD, ENGLAND
Starting early in 2013 and running at least to the next British election sometime before May, 2015, Action AWE is inviting people from around Britain and beyond to come to Berkshire and take creative, disruptive, disobedient, fun and exciting action against the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston and Burghfield, and show opposition to the making of warheads and replacement of Britain’s Trident nuclear submarine fleet. Initiated by several long-time activists from the UK anti-nuclear movement, Action AWE builds on the experience of Trident Ploughshares and the Faslane 365 campaigns, intending to influence the political debate around Trident replacement at a critical economic and diplomatic crossroads.

WALK FOR A NUCLEAR FREE FUTURE IN AUSTRALIA, CANADA, U.S. AND JAPAN
The Walk for a Nuclear Free Future is actually a series of walks through Australia, Canada, the United States and Japan over a five year period. The walks will follow the deadly nuclear fuel path from uranium mines to nuclear reactors, waste dumps and nuclear weapons sites. The drug- and alcohol-free walks will range from two to six months, covering an average of 15 miles/day. A support van with kitchen will accompany each walk. Walkers will educate themselves and the public about a nuclear free future using street theater, music, art, public forums, media, petitioning, letter writing and nonviolent direct actions. This year, Walk Away from Uranium Mining in Southwest Australia, August 21 – October 30. In 2012, Saskatchewan to Montreal, Canada. 2013, Minnesota to Buffalo, NY, and 2014, Miami, FL to Oak Ridge, TN. 2015: Oak Ridge, TN to Hiroshima, Japan. Walk coordinator Footprints for Peace has for over a decade organized annual walks, runs and bike rides bringing thousands of people into the streets to create positive change through peaceful action.
