Peace & Planet: Reportback from Vienna Nuclear Abolition Conference

Joseph Gerson, American Friends Service Committee will speak on New Hopes for Nuclear Abolition: Reportback from the Vienna Conference on Humanitarian Consequences of Nuclear Weapons

Yes, I’ll be there!

Attend the next organizing meeting for the Peace & Planet mobilization in NYC April 24-26.  Joseph Gerson of AFSC will report back on the Vienna conference on the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons.

YOU can make a difference!

The United States, U.K., Russia, China and France long ago signed onto a commitment to negotiate the elimination of their nuclear weapons, but after 44 years this group has yet to hold its first meeting.

April 27, 2015 is when the nations of the world meet at the UN to determine what — if anything — can be done to compel the U.S. and other nuclear weapons states to adhere to their commitments.

Between now and May, U.S. and international advocates urging the elimination of nuclear weapons by the U.S. and the other nuclear weapons states will be building a campaign of mass participation in events related to the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference.

April 24-26, 2015

New York City

• An international peace, justice and environmental conference – April 24 & 25

• A major international rally, march to the United Nations and peace festival – April 26

A world free of the threat of nuclear devastation starts with elimination of the U.S. and other nuclear arsenals.

Will you help us make it happen by joining us in New York City to press the U.S. and other nuclear states to start negotiating?  Sign up today!
