Nuclear Weapons Declared Illegal by United Nations

There is no joy in nuclear weapons

Friday, January 22, 2021 at 12 noon a celebration of joy will be held in front of the Federal Building on Henry Street in Binghamton. Church bells will ring, brass and string instruments will be played and anyone may speak their mind at open microphones. Nuclear weapons will be illegal by international treaty starting January 22nd, 2021.

Bring your own sign if you wish or share our signs and banners. 122 nations have called for an end to nuclear weapons. We want to get rid of nuclear weapons before they get rid of us.
