The new White House – regardless of who is actually running things there – has presented a number of challenges to organizations working for peace and nuclear disarmament. Near the top of the list of concerns is the country’s relationship with Russia – already tenuous with the number of Nuclear Weapons both countries possess, and made even more complicated by allegations of Russian meddling in our elections (as well as attempts to manipulate the FBI’s take on that situation). NATO is of course in that mix, and antagonistic comments from the current administration about NATO raise further questions about world security.
Thus they are pleased to have Kevin Martin, President of Peace Action’s national organization, and Reiner Braun, co-President of the International Peace Bureau, stopping in San Mateo while on tour to address U.S./NATO/Russia relations in this moment of history. On March 20 Kevin and Reiner will talk about “Mobilizing for Peace in the Trump Era – Pursuing Nuclear Disarmament and Common Security in Europe and the World”.
