Support Treaty to Ban the Bomb!

Did you know that negotiations are about to begin at the UN on the abolition of nuclear weapons? Last fall 123 countries voted for this treaty (sadly the U.S. was among 38 countries who voted against it.)

As negotiations to implement the treaty begin, it’s important that we show public support:

Demand that the U.S. change its vote and lead the way to a world free of nuclear weapons.

Write or Call Congress Now—
Take Trump’s Hand Off The Nuclear Button!

Mar 2, 2017

A new resolution is circulating in Congress. H.R. 669 is called “Restricting the First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act.” The act would require a congressional declaration of war in order to use nuclear weapons, except in response to an incoming nuclear attack, effectively blocking Trump from starting a nuclear war on a whim or because someone hurts his feelings on Twitter.

With Trump’s call for a nuclear build-up (as if the U.S. didn’t already possess enough of these earth-destroying weapons) and his oft-stated calls for possibly using them, not to mention his total ignorance on matters of nuclear arms control, it is imperative to support and pass this bill.

Here are two things you can do to help advance this bill—

  1. Sign a petition being circulated by CREDO.  The petition calls for support of H.R. 669 and is directed to Congress.  You can sign the petition here.
  2. Call, write, email or FAX a letter to your House member, urging them to support and work for passage of H.R. 669. If you don’t know who your House Representive is, find them here: link will also give you contact information: phone numbers, mail addresses, FAX numbers as well as sending an online e-mail message. Note that the best method with the greatest impact is a written letter or FAX. The phone numbers are often busy and don’t deliver as much impact as a written letter which is given great attention.

If you already know your House member, you can Congress  at (877) 762-8762. But, .again, a written letter is the most effective.

Go here to see a sample letter.

BFP Teach-In Reflects Huge Upsurge In Activism!

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Note: Photos from the BFP Teach-In can be viewed HERE.

Well over a hundred people filled up the auditorium in Touhy Hall at St. Joseph’s College in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brookyn.

There were there to attend an all day teach-in. The event, titled “The People Or Trump,” was called to examine Trump’s projected aggressive approach to using military solutions in international conflicts, his calls for a huge buildup in military expenditures and his beligerant approach to many different countries. How would this affect our communities? Could we expect more cutbacks to vital social services? Where will challenges to peace most likely occur?

The Teach-In consisted of two sessions. In the morning session, experts focused on the military budget and the Mid East.

The afternoon panel. Community activists in various areas of work shared their ideas on how to build a united movement to defeat Trumpism.
