Wisconsin Rally to Celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
January 22, 2022, Saturday, at 12 Noon
State Capitol Building in Madison, at State St, by the Forward! statue
We join anti-nuclear activists across the country and throughout the world on January 22 to celebrate the treaty’s first anniversary of the Entry Into Force,
We will also be protesting the stationing of F-35 First Strike Nuclear Bombers at Truax Field in Madison, Wisconsin, which is illegal under the treaty.
Speakers will address the long-term health effects of radiation exposure, the importance of educating young people about the dangers of nuclear weapons and Martin Luther King’s view that nuclear war would be catastrophic. Speakers will also address the links between climate change and nuclear weapons and the bed-down of the potentially nuclear capable F35 fighter jets at Truax Air Force Base.
