Presentation and reportback by Joseph Gerson

No one is an island. This also applies to the world’s peace movements, which are stronger and more successful when we work together.

Representing the newly formed Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security, Joseph Gerson has been on the move. In August, he participated in the World Conference Against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where the focus was on the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty, It also served as a venue for joint action between the U.S. and South Korean delegations and exchanges with activists and diplomats from thirty nations. Joseph later led an International Peace Bureau delegation to Okinawa in support of the steadfast nonviolent anti-bases movement there. And in mid-October, he will return from the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s international conference in London. His work has also included local and national organizing for a peaceful solution to the U.S.-North Korean nuclear crisis, reflected in his Common Dreams article.

He looks forward to sharing lessons from his engagements and to the give and take with Boston-area activists.
