This 28 April 2020 video says about itself:

As part of our GDAMS Campaign (see demilitarize.org) we hosted a webinar on Nuclear Weapons in Europe:

The tensions between nuclear weapons possessors states have worsened dramatically these last months, and Europe is at the centre of the storm. The suspension of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia has directly exposed Europe to a new nuclear arms race and there is no indication that a successor to the US-Russian New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) will be negotiated before the February 2021 deadline. What is the situation from different perspectives in Europe? How can civil society bring its contribution? This Webinar replacing a Side Event due the 2020 NPT session will host experts and activists to discuss with the participants how to challenge the nuclear weapons in Europe.
