The United States has decided to renew its investment in nuclear weapons, which is why peace activists want you to come learn how to beat the bomb for a nuke-free world. This weekend, you can also celebrate the sun at Solar Day Salt Lake—a 100 percent solar-powered event featuring solar vendors and speakers talking about the renewable energy's potential here in Utah. Later on in the week, don't miss a Salt Lake City Council meeting going over issues like a proposed change in fees for newspaper racks, and transit options between Davis County and Salt Lake City.

Beat the Bomb: Total Elimination of All Nuclear Weapons
Friday, Sept. 26

This weekend, you can bring out the family to hear the drums of peace and learn about how to rally against a nuclear future at this event, put on by the Utah Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, the Gandhi Alliance for Peace, and the United Nations Association of Utah. Participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair and blanket and enjoy music from Congolese drummers, Japanese Taiko drummers and more.
