Nuclear Disarmament March and Rally May 1st NYC
23 Feb 2005
Modified: 09:14:46 AM
On May 1st people from all over the world will gather in New York City for a massive march and rally to demand total and immediate nuclear disarmament.
Sunday, 01 May 2005

MARCH AND RALLY TO DEMAND NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT NOW!

The May 1st demonstration will precede a month-long meeting of world governments at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City to discuss the fate of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

http://www.reachingcriticalwill.org/legal/npt/nptindex1.html

a treaty in which nuclear weapons states – United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, and France agreed to eliminate their nuclear weapons arsenals.

The Bush administration continues to manipulate the treaty by vehemently demanding disarmament from other countries, while expanding US production and development of nuclear weapons. US used nuclear weapons as an excuse for war in Iraq. Will North Korea and Iran be next?

United in our opposition to the growing threat of nuclear war, and the use of nuclear weapons as a pretext for war, we must mobilize now and demand the full and rapid implementation of the promise for nuclear disarmament.

We'll be joined by a delegation of mayors from around the world, as they deliver the call for nuclear disarmament, on behalf of millions of people, to the United Nations. Mayors will lead marches to the rally site on May 1st. Join a mayor from your region in a march on May 1st.

May 1st rally site will be determined shortly. Permits will be filed for the Great Lawn in Central Park. For more information on May 1st and to join the planning efforts, please sign up for the MayDay2005 listserve, send e-mail to MayDay2005-subscribe (at) yahoogroups.com.

GLOBAL DISARMAMENT STARTS AT HOME – IT'S TIME TO DISARM AMERICA

The continued possession of thousands of nuclear weapons by the existing nuclear weapons states, together with the US policy of preventive war and its push to modernize its nuclear arsenal, provide arguments for other countries to develop nuclear weapons of their own.

NUCLEAR WEAPONS THREATEN EVERYONE'S SECURITY

Nuclear weapons remain the most dangerous of all weapons, the only ones that can destroy civilization in a day. We need to redefine security in human and ecological terms, rather than military ones: food, shelter, clean air and water, jobs, healthcare and education. This kind of security is universal.
