Protest the So-Called “Annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit” in Washington, D. C.
January 31 - February 2Free
Come protest the so-called “16th Annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit” in Washington, D. C.
One week after the 3rd Anniversary of the TPNW, which this year has decided to focus on debunking the failed concept of nuclear deterrence, our entire nuclear weapons industry, with its many corporations and government agencies involved, will gather in Washington, D.C. to do the opposite of deterrence….enthusiastically promoting ‘deterrence’, building nuclear weapons better, faster, more accurate and integrated in their overall omnicide, insuring their contracts. More money flowing than asked for.
As individuals or organizations please come for an hour, a day, or all three days.
Make your own strategies, Pick your own times:
8 AM ish when the “summit” begins
6 PM ish when they wrap,
or lunch hours,
or the whole day.
(“summit” schedule is here)
Some will be outside all three days, all day, and very much welcome your solidarity.
Bring banners, make signs and/or develop your own non-violent actions you feel best to stand up.
Bring your fortitude to ease your upset stomach when you see the braggadocio and self assurance of ‘leading in deterrence’.
For those focussed on the genuine urgency of Gaza, understandably, most of these same corporations and agencies are the very same that also make the bombs, missile defense systems and war machinery sent to and used in Ukraine and Israel. Israel is currently the world’s greatest threat for starting a nuclear war.
