January Actions Organizing Meeting
DATE: Wednesday, December 9, 2020
TIME: 4 pm
PLACE: Zoom (link coming soon)
Friday, Jan. 22, 2021 – The meeting will discuss NYC WRL’s endorsement of actions on this day and our role in a vigil at the Isaiah Wall at Noon, preceeded by a march from Union Square at 10:30. The United States has not signed the treaty but 50 countries have ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at the United Nations, so the Treaty will enter into force on January 22, 2021. Celebrate — and demand that the US disarm!
Monday, Jan. 25, 2021 – Global Day of Action for Yemen (NYC action to be planned). The war is only possible because Western countries — and the United States and Britain in particular — continue to arm Saudi Arabia and provide military, political and logistical support for the war. https://www.facebook.com/events/1377822562419049
January 11, 2002 is the date the date that the first “war on terror” prisoners arrived at Guantánamo Bay. Witness Against Torture has been leading the campaign to close the prison. They are making plans for January 2021.
