An announcement from Massachusetts Peace Action (updated)
In the context of the suffering and changes being wrought by the pandemic, the six- hour world conference [focused] on the continuing urgent need to abolish nuclear weapons and its relationship to stanching the climate emergency and challenging injustices which have left so many people marginalized and vulnerable. Additional sessions of the World Conference and four workshops will be for a healthier time in the future.
