Join Us for a Nuclear Weapons-Free, Just and Environmentally Sustainable WorldThe Ukraine crisis and the simulated U.S. nuclear attacks against North Korea remind us that the threat of nuclear war and annihilation didn’t end with the Cold War. 2015 will mark 70 years since the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; still, the nuclear powers possess nearly 17,000 nuclear weapons. We demand that when the world’s nations gather in New York for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference they mandate the beginning the good faith negotiations to eliminate the world nuclear arsenals, as required by the Treaty. Peace Action is part of an International Planning Group organizing an international conference, interfaith service, rally, march, youth and student programs and a global peace wave on April 24-26, preceding the NPT conference.
