May 3rd WRL action for nuclear abolition

We Declare NYC a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone (starting with Grand Central Station)!

Monday, May 3, 2010 8-10am Grand Central Station

War Resisters League is marking the beginning of the United Nations’ Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference with creative and nonviolent direct action at Grand Central Station.
We assert that “Nuclear Disarmament Begins at Home.” Throughout the Cold War, the United States spent more than $5 trillion on nuclear weapons. More than 20 years later, the Obama administration will spend more than $7 billion this year on nuclear weapons research and development, despite pledges to work towards a nuclear weapons free world and participation in the treaty meetings at the United Nations. As the only country to use nuclear weapons in war, the United States-- which unilaterally began the nuclear arms race-- should unilaterally put an end to the nuclear arms race.

Come join with us as we use flyers, signs and banners to press our government to disarm. The action will include nonviolent direct action, but is also open to people who are not able to risk arrest.

If you are interested in participating, please notify Kimber Heinz at kimber [at] or (212) 228-0450 Ext. 12.

We will have a nonviolence training (if you have never been part of nonviolent direct action or need a refresher please plan on coming) on Sunday, May 2 (9-12, The Refectory at Union Theological Seminary, enter on Broadway at 121st Street, Manhattan) and a scenario overview and final planning session also on Sunday, May 2 (5-7:30pm, The Gallery Room, Holmes Community House, Community Church of New York, 28 East 35th Street between Park and Madison). Please RSVP for the training.
