Global Seeds of Peace Sprouting: A Report from Inside the June 2017 Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty Negotiations at the UN, New York


Nuclear weapons are the only weapons of mass destruction that are not banned. (Land mines and poison gas are banned).

DESCRIPTION:
Mary Olson, Dr Bert Crain, Linda Modica, Dan Keyser, Frances Lambert were in NYC at the United Nations during its negotiations on a NEW GLOBAL TREATY TO BAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS! More info / photos 

What does it mean to make a new treaty? How can nuclear weapons be "banned?" What is the evidence that supports the application of Humanitarian Law, instead of Military Law?
 
The program is the report from participation in exploring these questions inside UN. We will have time for your questions and discussion.
