All over the world people say no more nukes! These weapons have been banned internationally and now the international community has come to Germany to get the US nukes out!
An event held Saturday, July 15th welcomed the international activists that came to Büchel Air Force Base. Below it is captured in video clips.
The Nukewatch Delegation
At the International Week of Action members of the Nukewatch- organized delegation explain why they have come to Germany to oppose nuclear weapons.
“75-80% of uranium mining happens on indigenous lands worldwide. All over the world indigenous people dealing with the uranium mining have the same problems. It’s just a different company and a different government they are fighting.”
“How much is too much to give for our children?” From where the bombs are made in Oak Ridge, TN to their destination in Büchel, they meet resistance.
“I’d rather be playing with my grandchildren than resisting nuclear weapons and being put in prison.”
“Dorothy Day called nuclear weapons ‘gas chambers without walls.’ If we wouldn’t put people in gas chambers why would we fling them on people? The whole world has been turned into a concentration camp. Incineration is our fate unless we act to abolish nuclear weapons and war.”
