Reminder! Discussion tonight in Taos, 6 pm, "Ban the Bomb: Why, How, and Your Role!" Pass it on!
November 14, 2014
Dear Taos friends --
Please forgive the very late notice if you can, and please pass this notice on to your friends! We have been swamped here and forgot to send this reminder until this morning!
TONIGHT, Friday, Nov. 14th, at 6 pm at the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative in Taos, 118 Cruz Alta Road, the Los Alamos Study Group will host a talk and practical discussion about the growing international movement to ban the bomb and our roles in it:
"Ban the Bomb: Why, How, and Your Role"
The importance of this growing movement and its critical relevance to New Mexico activism of all kinds has only increased over the past year.
Trish and I were recently in New York at the UN First Committee, meeting with some of the international leaders of the movement. I gave a talk on a panel sponsored by Ireland and Mexico, which was attended (for the first time, apparently) senior diplomats from the U.S. and U.K. Both countries' foreign ministries are showing signs of concern that this movement, the initial steps of which are now supported by 155 countries, could get out of hand.
As a result of meetings there, we have a much clearer picture of the challenges, urgency, and importance of this effort.
We particularly hope anyone interested in 2015 events surrounding the 70th anniversary of the Trinity test and the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings will attend tonight.
Please spread the word however you can today.
