“LAY DOWN THE LAW”/UN NUCLEAR BAN TREATY AT LOCKHEED MARTIN
Parking available in the rear of the King of Prussia Mall or in the movie theater just across from Lockheed Martin main entrance.
The atomic bombing of Hiroshima, August 6, 1945, wiped out 90 percent of the city and immediately killed 80,000 people in the blast and firestorm; tens of thousands more would later die of radiation exposure. Three days after Hiroshima the U.S. dropped another A-bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 40,000 people, and thousands more from the delayed effects of radiation poisoning.
In memory of the dead, as they peer to us from under the mushroom clouds, remember that the unimaginable threat of world wide nuclear devastation, will only end with the abolition of nuclear weapons and the tools of their production.
Join with the Brandywine Peace Community, friends, and supporters, in the renewed fight to abolish nuclear weapons and rid the Earth of the threat to all humanity, the threat of nuclear war!
As a bell of peace tolls, people are invited to stand or sit (bring your folding chair) among the banners and picture, including the Hiroshima/Nagasaki child pictured above. Encourage others to stop by the display and, following the display, to participate in the protest at the main entrance to Lockheed Martin.
On July 7, 2017 –- following a decade of advocacy by International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and its partners -– an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations adopted a landmark global agreement to ban all nuclear weapons, known officially as the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
The treaty was negotiated at the United Nations headquarters in New York in March, June and July 2017, with the participation of more than 135 nations, as well as members of civil society. It opened for signature on 20 September 2017. It is permanent in nature, and will be legally binding on those nations that join it.
NUCLEAR WEAPONS NOW ILLEGAL!
On Jan. 22, 2021, the UN Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons went into effect worldwide as international law, after being ratified by 51 nations.
Now, there are now 55 state ratifiers.
All nine nuclear armed nations abstained from the treaty’s adoption. The United States along with Russia possesses 90% of nuclear weapons in the world today.
