Massive anti-#nuclear war and testing protests of 80s-90s had serious impact;
hope for effect of #HINW now - Dr Muller #DisarmDial @Wilton Park
I have heard this stated again and again: the massive anti-nuclear protests -- starting in the 1980s -- had a big impact.
I take inspiration from this image of the protest in Central Park in 1982:
|New York City, Central Park: No Nukes Mobilization, 1982|
SO: If this is true -- if mass mobilization and mass action really DOES make a difference -- what should this motivate us to do in 2015?
This question is particularly urgent in the light of the make-or-break nature of the 2015 Review Conference on the NPT (Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons), taking place at the UN in New York City beginning in late April.
Testify: Were you part of past successful mass
mobilizations against nukes?
Tell people about it!
Organize: Find others in your area and
M O B I L I Z E !
Innovate: Times have changed --
contribute your new ideas about how to mobilize
successfully in these new times!
Share: Participate in #NoNukesTuesday

There are three centers of power that will impact nuclear disarmament: the President, the Congress, and the people. One of them will have to make nuclear disarmament happen.
