NUCLEAR SECURITY IN EUROPE

AFTER THE COLLAPSE OF THE INF TREATY

September 14th, 2019 Brussels

11am to 5pm at the office of Pax Christi

Rue du Progrès, 323 - B-1030 Brussels

Tensions are growing among states possessing nuclear weapons and the collapse of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty brings Europe closer to the brink of another dangerous Cold War. Meanwhile, the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) gains traction and opens new avenues for urgently needed common campaigns and actions.

  • Peace groups
  • International peace networks
  • Social and environmental movements
  • Churches
  • Trade unions
  • Everyone who wants to make the planet safer

All are welcome to discuss this challenging situation and the way forward to a nuclear-weapons-free Europe.

Signed in 1987 by the Unites States and the Soviet Union, the INF Treaty bans a complete class of nuclear weapons -- land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with ranges of 500 to 5,500km. The Treaty signalled a victory on the part of millions of Europeans who, during the 1980s, demonstrated against the “Euromissiles”. As the United States and Russia again spend enormous sums on modernizing their nuclear arsenals, tensions between both countries are widely recognized as being at their worst since the end of the Cold War.

How do we stop this nuclear arms race? How best to promote and implement the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons? What alternatives are there for peace and common/human security in Europe? How can we achieve European Nuclear Disarmament?

A detailed agenda will be published in July. Please save the date and if you are interested in attending, please send a note to Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots. JavaScript dient ingeschakeld te zijn om het te bekijken.. Feel free to share this invitation!
