On Friday, January 22, 12 noon, a celebration of joy was held in front the Federal Building on Henry St., Binghamton, to cheer for 2/3 of all nations who have made nuclear weapons illegal on this day.
Church bells rang, trumpet, sax, fiddle and drums blasted and beat as a joyous New Orleans style Second Line paraded around our USA Federal Building.
We want to get rid of nuclear weapons before they get rid of us.
