“As long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe.” After approximately two years of silence on the issue, on June 19 President Obama called for reducing US and Russian nuclear weapons while speaking in Berlin. Many praised his proposal for a reduction of long-range nuclear weapons by “up to” a third. But critics point out that this is not enough, and is not even as significant a cut as it seems at first. US and Russia each have over 7,000 nuclear weapons, of which only about 1,500 apparently qualify for this proposed cut.

March for a Nuclear Free Future / Hiroshima Day

Tue, Aug 6, 2013 11:30am - 1:30pm
201 East Washington Street, Syracuse NY 13202

Peace Action and the Syracuse Peace Council commemorate the tragic nuclear bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and we renew our commitment to creating a nuclear-free world. We also remember the disastrous meltdown at the Fukushima Daiitchi nuclear power plant in 2011. We know that nuclear contamination is equally dangerous whether it comes from bombs or power generation, and the promotion of nuclear power worldwide contributes to nuclear weapons proliferation.
