Disarm/End Wars UpdatePublished on November, 44 2012
Sunday November 11: Ring bells to end wars
Midnight, November 13-14: Stop another nuclear missile test at Vandenberg AFB. Follow MacGregor Eddy’s blog for WILPF actions and victories at Vandenberg Air Force Base. After seven lonely years of work many other wonderful folk and organizations are now joining us and the Catholic Worker there!
November 25 to December 10: Let’s End Wars and Gender Violence. Join WILPF Peace Women, and women’s organizations throughout the world to end domestic violence in our homes and the violence of war.
All month follow WILPF Reaching Critical Will First Committee Monitor as the UN General Assembly sets the disarmament agenda for 2013, including nuclear weapons abolition, space demilitarization, the arms trade, and depleted uranium. Read about our own special concerns like Depleted Uranium (p. 11) and the Middle East Nuclear Free Zone (p. 22). Learn about the First Committee here.
All month join our campaign to stop drones and robotic warfare. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org the campaign coordinator to learn about WILPF Branch death marches and participation in monthly actions at Beale Air Force Base. In WILPF civil disobedience is a personal option chosen by some and a matter of individual conscience.
And PARTICIPATE IN ONE or more of our informal working groups as DISARM-END WARS moves into 2013. What better way to spend some hours of our lives than in building a better world for our children, grand children and generations to come?
