Marcus Patrick Blaise Pegasus-Unicorn Page-Collonge is distributing leaflets during the
14-day Peace Fast in revolt against domination, consumption and nuclearism.
Mr. Pegasus (of Earth Abides Catholic Worker Farm and Trinity House Catholic Worker) joined local Fasters for Peace (Joe and Peter of the Tacoma Catholic Worker) on July 24th by stopping food consumption. On this morning of picketing and distributing fliers in solidarity with others who are attempting to disarm the United States of its nuclear weapons, Pegasus was able to hand-out six fliers (although 300 cars passed by) between 7am and 8am on the first day of his fast in Washington at the Trident Nuclear Submarine Base (Naval Base Kitsap--Trigger Gate).
Cliff, James & Marc of Pax Christi: always ready for public witness against nuclearism, Here they are at the blue line
in front of Naval Base Kitsap. Pegasus walked back and forth to help passengers acquire free-speech materials
regarding peace-fasting and mostly regarding the employees' obligations to stop nuclear crimes.
In 1949, on Thanksgiving Day Ammon Hennacy wrote:
LOVE without COURAGE and WISDOM is sentimentality,
as with the ordinary church member.
COURAGE without LOVE and WISDOM is foolhardiness,
as with the ordinary soldier.
WISDOM without LOVE and COURAGE is cowardice,
as with the ordinary intellectual.
Therefore one with LOVE, COURAGE, and WISDOM
is one in a million who moves the world,
as with JESUS, BUDDHA, and GANDHI.
Mr. Pegasus was able to join the Nipponzan Miyohoji Interfaith peace walk in Portland before going on to New Mexico for the Pax Christi Santa Fe prayer-action at LANL on the 4th of August.

Born in 1893, Ammon Hennacy lived a life seeking consistency, integrity, and revolutionary values to help wake up the North American conscience. In his early 20s, due to his anti-capitalist agitation, he was imprisoned during the First World War where he learned about
the revolution of the heart in solitary confinement. Having gained this wisdom and ability to love his enemy,
Ammon began to travel the U.S. and Canada, teaching and propagandizing for nonviolence and love.
He worked tirelessly as a proponent of
pacifism, anarchism, and the Sermon on the Mount. As a true personalist, Hennacy took direct action, picketed,
fasted, and spoke to countless people wherever and whenever he could. Ammon joined the
Catholic Worker Movement when he discovered that the Worker had similar values to his. He practiced what he preached,
and through his wit, charm, courage, love, and wisdom, created friends out of enemies.
