No Nukes, No Wars

We are happy to be passing along an exciting new resource: a power point presentation that links the struggle against nuclear weapons with our efforts to end the war in Iraq: http://tinyurl.com/aveqf

This is particularly timely as we approach the mass mobilization being organized in New York City for Sunday, May 1st.

If you have a computer with power point software you can open this attachment. If not, please ask others in your group if they have that software and forward this message to them. Please show the presentation to your members and share it with other groups. You should also check the UFPJ web site in a few days; we will be converting the power point presentation into pdf files which you will be able to download.

We especially hope you will be able to use this resource in the coming week or so, as we gear up for the May 1st mobilization.

The Bush administration brought us to war in Iraq because of a supposed threat of "weapons of mass destruction" - including nuclear weapons. The whole world now knows this was a lie to justify a war to control Iraq's oil. The war rages on with tens of thousands killed and maimed, Iraq in ruins, and hundreds of billions of dollars wasted while our schools, health care and other vital services suffer, hitting people of color, the poor and working people the hardest.

This May, world leaders, mayors and citizens of dozens of countries are coming to New York City. They will meet at the UN to decide the fate of the endangered Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Signed by 189 nations, including the United States, the treaty prohibits non-nuclear states from acquiring nuclear weapons, and requires nuclear nations, including ours, to negotiate the elimination of nuclear weapons.

The Bush administration threatens war against Iran and North Korea, charging them with violating the NPT, but ignores its own treaty obligations, spending $40 billion a year on nuclear forces and threathening to use them first.

This is the 60th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On Sunday, May 1st, tens of thousands of people are marching to support the call to abolish all nuclear weapons and to bring our troops home from Iraq. We have a historic opportunity to help people see how these issues are connected. And the power point included as an attachment is a valuable tool in this educational process. We hope you will be able to use it widely.

peace,
