SATURDAY 11 PT (2ET)
Towards Nuclear Disarmament
Veterans For Peace (VFP) has issued a remarkable Nuclear Posture Review that is what the US government should be putting out, but won’t. The VFP Nuclear Posture Review warns that the danger of nuclear war is greater than ever and that nuclear disarmament must be vigorously pursued. With the first anniversary of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) on January 22, the VFP Posture Review calls on the U.S. government to sign the treaty and to work with other nuclear-armed states to eliminate all the world’s nuclear weapons. It also calls for measures that would reduce the risk of nuclear war, such as implementing policies for No First Use and taking nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert. Join VFP members Ken Mayers, Gerry Condon, and Alice Slater as well as longtime anti-nuclear activist Joseph Gerson for a discussion of this document and how it can be used as an organizing tool.
