Stop the New Nuclear Arms Race Conference
May 22-25, 2020
What is it about? We want to develop ways to collaborate globally to advance the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and achieve nuclear abolition. We will have strategy sessions, panel presentations, music, and opportunities for networking, training, protest, action, and cake.
Who is it for? You—if you want to be part of a coherent, effective movement, blending multiple strategies, to get rid of nuclear weapons. We’re planning sessions on resistance, divestment campaigns, legal challenges, local organizing, political action. We are stronger when we understand and collaborate with each other.
Where is it? Maryville College, Maryville, TN, is 20 miles from the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge, TN, where US thermonuclear weapons components are made. How do I get more information? We are in the early planning stages. For more information check: nukewatchinfo. org/stop_new_nuclear_arms_race for more information.
Why now? It’s two minutes to midnight—the nuclear threat is real and urgent. 2020 also marks 75 years since Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Trinity. And 40 years of the Nuclear Resister, Nukewatch, and the Plowshares movement.

Please join the German campaign to send the existing U.S. nuclear weapons back home, and to halt production of the new B61-12 nuclear bomb, scheduled to be built in the U.S. by 2020 and deployed in five European countries―Italy, Belgium, Holland, Turkey, and Germany.
We invite anti-nuclear, environmental peace and human rights activists to the Nukewatch delegation July 8 to 16, 2019, at the main gate of the Büchel Air Base in Germany with emphasis on young people! The international Action Camp is part of our 20 weeks of action from March 26th to August 9th (Nagasaki memorial day). Twenty weeks represent the 20 B61 H-bombs still at Büchel AB.
