Los Alamos Study Group to Hold Weekly Public Meetings in ABQ and Santa Fe

From the Los Alamos Study Group:
The Los Alamos Study Group is beginning a series of weekly public breakfast seminar and discussion meetings in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque. There will be 21 meetings at each location over the coming six-month period. We’ll start this week and end the first week in April, plotting our direction for future meetings from there. We won’t have meetings during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The overall theme of these seminars will be “Dimensions of the Global Crisis: Responses and Renewal.”  Of course we will emphasize nuclear policy, New Mexico, and we ourselves as actors and participants.  This week's topic will be "Los Alamos in Crisis -- The Decline and Fall of a Nuclear Weapons Laboratory?" We hope to alternate each week between factual aspects of the unfolding crisis (which is a crisis for New Mexico in particular) on the one hand, and our political response to it on the other.

Everybody is invited.  We expect these discussions to be informative, lively, and inspiring, despite the hour. If you aren't awake when you arrive I trust you will be an hour and a half later. Topics will be announced beforehand. Besides core Study Group personnel there will be occasional guest speakers. 

The Albuquerque meetings will be held every Wednesday morning at the Mennonite Church, 1300 Girard NE. The first meeting was October 31. There will be no meetings on November  21 or December 26.

The Santa Fe meetings will be held every Thursday morning at the United Church of Santa Fe, 1804 Arroyo Chamiso. The first meeting will be November 1. There will be no meetings on November 22 or December 27.

Meetings will begin at 7:25 AM and end at 8:45 AM. (Please be prompt!) Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be provided. There is no cost –- provided there are enough donations to cover the modest expenses. We’ll pass the hat.

In addition to these meetings, if you would like someone from the Study Group to speak to your church, peace group, college class, or organization, please call or write. We have a small speakers’ bureau and in all likelihood we can probably respond favorably.
