JOHN AMIDON: John Amidon is an antiwar peace activist residing in Albany, NY. His activism takes shape in many different formats. A quick search of John Amidon and the Times Union will reveal that he is an accomplished writer, a concerned citizen, and an active civil resister. He is the current President of Veterans For Peace, Albany Chapter, a long time attender of Albany Friends Meeting, and a member and past president of the Interfaith Alliance of NYS.

His sense of justice and moral convictions compels him to take strong stands against drone warfare and nuclear weapons amongst other concerns. In 2016 he was arrested at both the Nevada National Test Site and, this past December 2016, at Hancock Air Field, in DeWitt, NY, dressed as St. Joseph, part of a living Nativity protest against drones.

He has worked diligently to challenge Islamophobia with a 2016 voter registration drive at Capital District Mosques. he firmly believes in Love/God and his activism is spiritually based. He is the founder and co-facilitator of the Kateri Tekakwatha Interfaith Peace Conference held in Fonda, NY. He has visited 25 countries in his travels and encourages everyone to explore the world for "learning befriends the traveler."

His YouTube website, pazamidon, documents many of the protests he has participated in and his skillful use of videography and photography. His 4 years of active duty in the USMC, 65-69, taught him that war is a savage and murderous lie. He is a great admirer and student of the Bhagavad Gita and the Mahabharata and has taught Hindu Heritage classes. Finaly, and last but not least, he is a grower of dahlias and like so many, he yearns for spring to plant a summer garden.

John will be joined by actress, Nancy Rothman and singer, Sheri Bauer-Mayorga
