Biden & Putin are heads of Outlaw states June 18, 2021 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

It’s Time for Diplomacy Not




President Biden and President Putin should reaffirm at their June 16, 2021 meeting in Geneva,

the 1985 Reagan/Gorbachev declaration in Geneva:

“A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.”

Nuclear Weapons are Now Illegal

      On January 22, 2021 the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force under international law. The Treaty specifically prohibits State Parties from developing, testing, producing, manufacturing, acquiring, possessing, deploying, using or threatening to use nuclear weapons, and from assisting or encouraging such acts.   The “Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty” as it is also known, has been approved by122 nations in the UN General Assembly and now ratified by more than 50 countries as required under international law. The nine countries known to have nuclear weapons: U.S., Russia, China, UK, France, Israel, Pakistan, India and North Korea have so far failed to ratify the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty.

The US and Russia have 90 percent of the world’s nuclear warheads!

The United States, Russia, and the 7 other countries which continue to possess nuclear weapons are now Outlaw States. Worsening relations between Washington and Moscow means increasing the dangers that the world will blow up in a nuclear holocaust. It’s time for an about face – to reopen, restore, and re-engage respectful dialogue to resolve differences, instead of fueling profits for the military industrial complex.

      The urgent need is to redirect military spending toward meeting human needs and protecting the environment, especially in this time of a global pandemic and pending climate catastrophe. The United States spends more on militarism than Russia, China, India, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, and Brazil – combined. We need to create a safer, not more dangerous, world for future generations.

Feed People, NOT the War Machine! Help Save Humanity!

No New Cold War with Russia & China!
