WBW News & Action: Armistice Day Is Coming

Image

Armistice / Remembrance Day #103 is November 11, 2020 — 102 years since World War I was ended at a scheduled moment (11 o’clock on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 — killing an extra 11,000 people after the decision to end the war had been reached early in the morning). Find, list, or create an event.

Stop the killing. There is no equivalence of blame or anything else here. Read this article and watch this video.

But the surest way for the world to stop the killing is to embargo all weapons to both sides. Sign the petition, share it with others who can also sign and share it. We can deliver it to governments around the world.

The Billboard pictured above in Milwaukee, where it generated a lot of media and events, will be going up in November in St. Louis, thanks to a generous donation. Our new idea is, when 50 nations have ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, to put up billboards in Europe asking the United States to get its illegal weapons out of the continent. We’re looking for more ideas and more funding. Help out here.
