Friday, January 23rd is the beginning of the Nuke Free California Weekend gathering in San Luis Obispo. (see more info at: SLO Mother for Peace ) To commemorate this event and to start the New Year on a note of hope, Reverend Sawada will be walking from Diablo Canyon to the Courthouse in San Luis Obispo. It is a peaceful and prayerful 12 mile walk.
The rough schedule is as follows:
9 am – Gather at the gates of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (just beyond Avila Beach, on Avila Road, west of Highway 101)
Bill Deneen, a long-time local activist elder, will also be there with signs from 10am.
Walk to the Courthouse in San Luis Obispo via San Luis Bay Drive and Higuera Street.
Walkers should be arriving at the Courthouse (1050 Monterey Street, Downtown San Luis Obispo) sometime between 3:30 – 4:30pm.
Everyone is invited to walk with Reverend Sawada for all of or part of the way. Or, be at the Courthouse for his arrival. Signs and banners are welcome.
There are parking structures near the Courthouse, on Palm Street.
