Ashley Pond was the scene of a day-long anti-nuclear rally Sunday, as speaker after speaker came to the podium to speak out against the Los Alamos National Laboratory as well as nuclear warfare in general. The event was sponsored by Nuke Free Now.
Activist Robert Chavez told the crowd why it was important to teach youth about nuclear disarmament.
“The kids, that are growing up now, today, they are going to be the leaders of this community” he said. “They have to be informed now, no matter how old they are, even if they are just little kids.”
