January 11, 2023

Veterans For Peace, Chapter 23, Rochester (VFP23) and Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace (GVCP) have joined forces to rally in support of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, (TPNW) on the 2nd Anniversary of its entry into force on 22 January 2021. Please join together on Monday, January 23rd, 2023 at 4:00 pm in front of the Kenneth B. Keating Federal Building and Courthouse, 100 State St., Rochester, NY.

Nuclear weapons are illegal

Speakers will present demands to U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer (D) and Kirsten E. Gillibrand (D), and U.S. Representative Joseph Morelle (D-NY-25). Local politicians are being invited and will be announced as confirmation is received.

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, (TPNW) was adopted by the United Nations in July of 2017. The Treaty makes it illegal to develop, test, produce, manufacture, acquire, possess, stockpile, transfer, receive, use or even threaten to use nuclear weapons or explosive nuclear devices. 122 countries voted to adopt the Treaty in July 2017. The United States led a boycott of the negotiations and refused to sign, along with 8 other countries with nuclear weapons. Today, almost 50% of the world’s nations have voted to approve the Treaty by signing and/or ratifying the TPNW as the law of their land. Join us!
