NDP AGM featuring Bill Darnell of Greenpeace.

Okanagan Shuswap NDP
January 16, 2012

For Immediate Release


In 1971 the Greenpeace sailed towards Amchitka to stop the testing of nuclear weapons. Bill Darnell, one of the twelve crew members, will be telling the story of that voyage and the early days of the Greenpeace organization in Armstrong January 22nd. Darnell will use his personal collection of photos, newspaper clippings and artifacts to bring to life this world-changing event.

Bill Darnell lives in the North Okanagan and is still actively involved in creating change, although now is less likely to put his life at risk as he did in the Gulf of Alaska."It was a different time at the beginning of great changes, but I see some similarities with today's climate and Occupy movements."

The event will begin at 2.30pm on Sunday, January 22nd at the Odd Fellows Hall (Sunset Coronation Hall) on Wood Avenue in Armstrong following the AGM of the NDP riding association. Everyone is welcome to attend.
