From the peace movement intal Greater Middle East in Belgium (translated):

10/01/2018: Conference on nuclear disarmament: necessary step for peace?

On 7 July 2017, a historic moment took place: 122 countries signed a UN treaty that forbids nuclear weapons. Not just a piece of paper, but a binding treaty for the signatories. Historical and hopeful. Most countries in the world want to get rid of nuclear weapons.

Belgium, on the other hand, remains on the sidelines. The left progressive group [of European Parliament members] GUE-NGL will be discussing this with some guests on 10 January from 3 pm to 6 pm in the European Parliament. Will you be there? You can register via

Final word by João Pimenta Lopes, GUE/NGL.

The ‘event’ in Hawaii only underlines the fallacy of believing that a nuclear conflagration is too horrific to ever be attempted. It is time we woke up to the reality of the threat, writes TOM UNTERRAINER, and acted decisively to eliminate it forever.

The media’s guilty silence on Hawaii nuclear war alert: here.
