A peace walk that’s in favor of worldwide nuclear arms disbandment is marching through the Pittsburgh region this week. The walk is going through McMurray, Library, McKeesport and Greensburg. It was also in Washington PA over the weekend. The three-month long walk began in Tennessee last month, and it will make its way to New York City in May, in time for a United Nations conference regarding nuclear arms.
Karrie-Ann Garlick, an Australian native with Footprints for Peace, says their message is simple: to bring a nuclear-free future to the world. She says people participating in the walk are coming from places such as Japan, Australia, Europe and the United States.
