2014 Pacific Life Community (PLC) Faith and Resistance Reteat
Fifty-eight West Coast faith-based activists attended the 2014 PLC Faith and Resistance Retreat in Las Vegas from Friday, March 7 – Monday, March 10. Gary and Julia, from the Las Vegas Catholic Worker, hosted this year’s retreat, with Bruce Gagnon, from Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space giving an excellent keynote presentation, along with Janet Chisholm, the new director of Nevada Desert Experience (NDE). Former NDE director Jim Haber and Marcus Page, from the Sheepranch Catholic Worker Farm, also gave presentations. We vigiled against drone warfare at Creech AFB, and against nuclear weapons at Nellis AFB, with 37 people getting arrested at the Nevada Nuclear Test Site on Monday, with another anti-nuclear vigil at the Department of Energy’s complex in North Las Vegas.
