THE PEACE PARK ANTINUCLEAR COALITION
HON. WALTER E. FAUNTROY
Mr. Fauntroy, Mr. Speaker, I would bring to the attention of my colleagues the earnest endeavors of a coalition of citizens entitled "The Peace Park Antinuclear Vigil."
Though their efforts have often been against the dominate currents of public policy, their message is one of universal importance.
In a plan for global nuclear disarmament, they repeat their plea:
We pray that humankind will abandon the military course which the nations of the world have historically pursued . . . and turn instead to international agreements to replace the present chaos.
As we near "Earth Day U.S.A., 1990," their plea takes no special poignance and meaning. Their pleas are jointly directed to the legislatures of both the Congress of the United States and the Supreme Soviet and its politboro in the form of a petition which was recently hand delivered to the Supreme Soviet by members of the coalition.
I would ask that we all remember the message they would have us carry to all corners of our precious Earth on this most important commemorative day.
