The last month of summer has arrived.  August brings with it the heat and the rush to fit into our lives the activities of summer.  The Newsletter is ready for you to read and share with family and friends.  We are working on getting hard copy out in the Boundary region of B.C. but we will continue to post it on our website with connections in Face Book, Twitter and LinkedIn for those out of our area that follow our work and lend your support.  Remember, we encourage you to print out a few copies to share with those who do have access to the Internet. 

The Boundary Peace Initiative hopes that part of your summer activities involves coming out to Hiroshima and Nagasaki Day commemorations in your communities as we remember and honour the victims of the Nuclear Industry.  In Castlegar meet at the Doukhobor Discovery Center at 6 pm for Hiroshima Day on August 6th and then in Grand Forks at 6 pm for Nagasaki Day on August 9th in Gyro Park to stand up for the abolition of nuclear weapons and stop the whole chain of the nuclear industry.  In other areas find out if there is an event and if not see if you can organize one, even a simple one to say NO MORE to the DESTRUCTION from the NUCLEAR INDUSTRY.

July is here and summer has officially arrived and with it the concerns of floods and fires.  There is time for fun in the sun with family and friends.  And hey, don’t forget to take along some reading materials.  Sadly, neither wars nor exploitation abate when we have our summer up here in the northern climes.  So, take a look at the Boundary Peace Initiative Newsletter where we feature information on Latin America this month.  And if you want print it out to share with those who do not have internet access or share it through your contact list.  It is meant to be shared.  Hopefully soon, we will once again distribute hard copy in the Boundary region of B.C. and if anyone wants hard copy please let me know and that can be arranged. 

Summer warmth has arrived.  In the Northern regions of our planet the short time for summer fun dominates our lives starting with the May long weekend in Canada.  But, sadly the woes and tragedies and bloodletting of the world do not stop and that is why it is important we pay attention and make our best efforts to do what we can to ensure there is a world for our future generations to live on.  In June’s Newsletter we share with you articles from the in person Mother’s Day Walk for Peace after two years of replicas online.  If you have family and friends without access to the Internet print out a copy and give it them and we urge you to share the website address through your contact list.  We are hoping to soon be able to once again distribute hardcopy through the Boundary region of B.C. but that will depend on the permission to do so.
