NEXT REGULAR GVCP ZOOM MEETING is Saturday, January 16th, 1:30 PM.
Next GVCP Event: NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE ILLEGAL! IT’S NOT JUST A NEW YEAR, IT’S A NEW ERA. **VIGIL ON FRIDAY, 1/22 AT 12:00 NOON.**
GVCP IS GOING TO HOST A VIGIL IN GENESEO ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 22nd at 12:00 NOON AT SOUTH AND MAIN ST. On that day the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will be in force, establishing in international law a categorical ban on nuclear weapons. Masks, distancing, etc.
The momentous occasion will be marked by actions, events, and celebrations across the United States and around the globe. The whole world is deciding to end the threat of nuclear weapons, once and for all. “Right now, the Treaty does not legally apply to the United States,” said Holly Adams, “because we have not signed or ratified it. But that does not mean we will not be feeling the moral force of the Treaty. We invite the United States to join the world. All nuclear weapons, including the 3,900 in the US stockpile, have been declared unlawful by the international community.”
Churches, including St Michael’s Episcopal Church on Main Street, Geneseo, will ring their bells at noon.
