Details

This is an original press photo. Vallejo Calif: Fifteen Pacifists staged what they termed a "grass roots protest" at Mare Island Naval Shipyard here 11/30, against the building of nuclear submarines, four of which are under construction at the base. The pacifists held the peaceful demonstration one day before their 12/1 departure on their "Moscow Peace Walk,", from San Francisco.

The Committee for Non-Violent Action (CNVA), formed in 1957 to resist the US government's program of nuclear weapons testing, was one of the first organizations to employ nonviolent direct action to protest against the nuclear arms race.
During the early 1960s, the CNVA organised two epic 'Walks for Peace', including a 6,000-mile (9,700 km) march from San Francisco to Moscow, during which the walkers called on the governments of the world to disarm. (Wikipedia)Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated --none.
