Commemorate Hiroshima & Call For US Ratification Of The UN TPNW: Jamestown, RI
Sun August 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
You are invited to gather on Sunday, August 7, 2022 at Noon rain or shine at the Jamestown East Ferry Memorial Square to Commemorate Hiroshima and to call for US ratification of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
We will have singing and brief talks by local elected officials. ALL ARE WELCOME.
- Seventy-seven years after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, there have been at least 13 times when nuclear war nearly broke out, due to accident, miscommunication, malfunction, or diplomatic crisis.
- Although we are threatened daily by the unimaginable horror of nuclear war, not many of us in the USA are even aware of this 2021 UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Both the US government and the mainstream US press have ignored it.
- Nevertheless, this TPNW treaty is in force in 66 nations around the world, making the fabrication or possession of these weapons illegal under binding international law.
- Join us to call for our government to join the TPNW treaty and negotiate an end to the nuclear stalemate with Russia and other nations.
