Nuclear Weapons Illegal on 22 January 2021!

posted in: Events, News

Few people know about the Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). That’s why we gather on January 22,2021, to mark and to celebrate its entry into force. The treaty was approved at the United Nations in July 2017 by 122 nations. Ninety days ago, Honduras became the 50th nation to deposit its ratification at the United Nations, triggering an automatic entry into force this January 22nd. In addition to 51 countries that have ratified the treaty, 33 more have signed — a total of 84 countries agreeing to ban nuclear weapons. ICAN, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on the treaty.

We will convene outside the Anthony J. Celebreeze Federal Building, 1240 E. 9th St., Cleveland.

11:30 am – Cleveland Catholic Worker will hold a prayer vigil.

12:00 pm – Cleveland Peace Action will hold a press conference to announce the treaty entering into force.

Social distancing observed. Masks are mandatory.

Cleveland Peace Action and Jewish Voice for Peace invite you to join us for Another Israeli Annexation (Version 2020), a stimulating and interactive presentation with Sam Bahour (Originally from Youngstown, Ohio) on Zoom, Wednesday August 12th at Noon, on Zoom. Click here to attend

On location in Al-Bireh/Ramallah, Sam Bahour, prominent journalist, diplomat, businessman, and editor will describe the current situation in Occupied Palestine under Israel’s announced illegal annexation plan to continue ethnic cleansing and Crimes Against Humanity. The Israeli plan isto “annex up to one-third of the West Bank to become part of the Israeli state. This land is the fertile Jordan River Valley which produces about 60% of Palestine’s agricultural food supply…The end result of this brutal policy of annexation will be the further impoverishment and oppression of the Palestinian Arab population of the West Bank…” Read CPA’s blog post on this.
