War on Earth!
Environmental Impact: Atomic Appalachia & 
the Militarized Southeast
 will be presented by Clare Hanrahan and Coleman Smith at the Sunday, August 19th meeting of the Ethical Society of Asheville, 2:00-3:30 PM, held at the Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road in North Asheville (off Merrimon Avenue near UNCA).  This visual documentation is a stunning presentation of the toxic legacy of militarism on the people and culture of the Southeast U.S., exposing the cumulative impact of the “military industrial complex’s” wasting of the region.  The presenters contend the military has waged a war on the earth.  Hanrahan and Smith are both organizers with New South Network of War Resisters, having more than 30 years of experience each working on social, economic, peace and environmental  justice issues.  Both are non violent direct action trainers, natives of the South and live in the Asheville area.    

There will be discussion following the presentation.  Following the meeting, there will be time for informal conversation.  All are welcome! 
The New South Network encourages Southeast regional initiatives for Action, Collaboration & Training In Organized Nonviolence (ACTION), connecting with people across issues, organizations and campaigns at work in the Southeast U.S. to end war, racism, sexism, and the exploitation of human, non-human,and natural resources, while working for social, economic, and environmental justice.
