from Nuclear Resister coordinators Felice and Jack Cohen-Joppa
Thank you so much for joining us yesterday to celebrate – not just 42 years and 200 issues of the Nuclear Resister – but four+ decades of a vibrant, persistent, creative, international, inspiring, courageous and hopeful resistance movement for a peaceful and nuclear free future!
Here’s a shout out to our sister organization, Nukewatch. They set up a big screen in the Nukewatch office and a group of them joined the celebration together!
Thanks again to Greta and Maya for all of their help with the program… It’s great that World BEYOND War provides a wide variety of assistance to other organizations!
Below are some helpful links that were posted in the chat. If anyone wants contents of the chat box, let us know and we’ll send that to you.
And here’s a reminder about how you can take action:
Write notes of support to Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier and drone war whistleblower Daniel Hale. Their prison addresses and mail restrictions can be found here: http://www.nukeresister.org/inside-out/
Write to President Biden to ask that he grant both prisoners clemency and free them immediately (please send separate letters on behalf of each of them). Instructions are here: https://worldbeyondwar.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/Clemency-support-and-action-page.pdf
ACTIONS ON JANUARY 22
Organize an event or action on January 22 to mark the 2nd anniversary of the Entry into Force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. For some ideas and inspiration, you can watch this brief video of actions across the U.S. taken on January 22, 2021, when the treaty entered into force. (https://vimeo.com/515883787) The Nuclear Ban Treaty Collaborative will have a planning meeting on December 13 at 7 p.m. eastern if you’d like to find out more.

Last but not least, thank you for your donations to help us carry on the work of the Nuclear Resister!
