BAD (Bay Area Downstreamers… or just “BAD” is fine) Seaweed is a hodgepodge of anti-nukes associated projects.
It is not a solid advocacy group, but rather, we are a chunk of curious people who are concerned about the issues of radiation, nuclear-military-industrial complex. so we are not into creating “raising awareness” approach in the “Did you know?…What can you do…” format. We know that you are awake as much as we are even though we might speak some different languages and express things differently from one another. We know that each one of us has the power and solutions already. All we do is to put our feet in the water and coax, and create waves to swim in!
