The Vermont Institute of International and Community Involvement (VICII), the Association of Africans Living in Vermont (AALV) and the Caroline Fund are pleased to invite you to this week's session. We're joined on Zoom by Dr. John Reuwer for a talk and discussion about the UN Nuclear Ban.
In a major victory toward nuclear abolition, the United Nations has ratified the Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons, which will come into force in international law on January 22, 2021. After that date, all activities supporting nuclear weapons will be illegal for the parties. The implications of this for the future makes for a fascinating discussion.
John Reuwer, M.D., is a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility Committee to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, and member of the board of World BEYOND War. He has worked with the coalition that brought about the TPNW. For more background on this treaty visit John’s article written in VTDigger in September, or www.ICANW.org. Robin Lloyd moderates and gives appreciation to the Ploughshares 7 who are now facing jail sentences for pouring blood at the site of the Trident nuclear submarine base in Kings Bay, Georgia.
