April 28, 2015, all UN Member States are in the UN today “discussing” the mandated every 5-year review of the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty).
Calling for action to Ban Nuclear Weapons and demilitarization, the War Resisters League together with many other groups including Peace Action, some of our Japanese sisters/peace activists, and GPB were across the street, first at the Isaiah Wall (……swords into plowshares quote), moving to the US Mission to the UN, and then for the 20 arrested (including Joan, Alice), to the 17th Precinct Police Station with a small outside and inside support group.
Why were they arrested: not moving from the front and side doors of the US Mission to the UN. The arrests were peaceful…..AND ALL photographed. All have been released….let us show support to the group for their court appearance next month.
