Announcements for Earth Day 4/29 thru May Day 5/1 (from Adrienne Fong)

ALERT  ALERT!!!

Tell Your Senators: No Military Attack Against North Korea

President Trump has summoned all 100 U.S. Senators to meet at the White House tomorrow, April 26, regarding the situation in North Korea. This sounds ominous. President Trump and members of his cabinet have stated that “all options are on the table.” Preemptive military action, not sanctioned by the UN Security Council, would be illegal, immoral and unwise. It could lead to a prolonged war in the Korean peninsula, and could lead to the use of nuclear weapons.

In addition, the U.S. has scheduled a test of its nuclear-capable Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile for the early morning hours of April 26, just before Trump’s meeting with Senators. Continually escalating the nuclear threat level with North Korea endangers us all.

Click to send prepared letter: Write your Senators today insisting upon a diplomatic – rather than a military – solution to the conflict with North Korea.
