Iconic Anti-Nuclear Activist Visits Boise

Posted By on Fri, Jan 20, 2012 at 8:58 AM

Internationally known anti-nuclear activist Joanna Macy is in Boise this weekend. The author of eight books, the 82-year-old Macy is in town as a guest of the Snake River Alliance, speaking this evening at Boise's First Congregational Church and leading a two-day workshop Saturday and Sunday at the Basque Center.

"I see hope in an actual readiness to open our eyes, minds and hearts," said Macy, who maintains a fairly active schedule in spite of her years.

"When you have a cause, and I have a lot of them, it brings me into contact with marvelous people," said Macy. "People who face up to nuclear power and nuclear-weapons production are some of the liveliest, soulful, energetic, funny and obstinate people I know."
