Boston Protest Against U.S. Wars on Iraq/Syria

About 50 peace activists held an anti-war speakout at Park St., then marched behind a model drone to downtown crossing, where a mock drones war "die-in" took place as street theater. It attracted a great deal of attention from downtown shoppers; a police car showed up, but allowed us to stay and continue our protest.

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.

We call for an end to militarism and war, action to save the planet from climate catastrophe, and a focus on social justice.

Peace+Planet.logo.100A 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!
