1995 SITE SPECIFIC ACTION: SAN FRANCISCO BAY. IN COLLABORATION WITH GREENPEACE INTERNATIONAL AND THE PEACE NAVY.
During fleet week, Oct 1995, in San Francisco Bay, we created an event to draw attention to the nuclear testing of France in the South Pacific. A plastic, inflatable loaf of french bread (75' long, 15' wide, 20' high), modeled after the famous "PARISIAN" brand of french bread, was created. In place of the brand name was the phrase "MAKE BREAD NOT BOMBS." This loaf of bread was then towed around the bay by Greenpeace so that it could be viewed by the thousands of people lining Crissy Field and Aquatic Park who had come to view the Naval ships coming into the Bay as well as the politicians and Admirals aboard the reviewing ship, the USS Dartmouth. The intention was to point out ecological damage to the bay by the US Navy and the damage to our planet by the nuclear testing in the South Pacific.
