JG: With a full open, grateful heart: 💜 Reality in our world until August 6, 1945 we lived with our own personal deaths, then Hiroshima and NAgasaki 3 days later, then possibility of species/planetary death from massive death from nuclear weapons [[Category:Issue-Nuclear Weapons]], omnipresent specter of immense damage from the push of a single button, could initiate the death nell of our species, nuclear threat has receded into the background, though on hair trigger alert around the world, today the UN banning nuclear weapons [[Category:Issue-Nuclear Weapons]] is coming into force. Joe Biden’s 1/15 first executive orders extended the START nuclear treaty with Russia-slowing arms race to 1550 nuclear weapons [[Category:Issue-Nuclear Weapons]] to each USA and Russia

Ray: Not yet sunk in, daily activations leading up to this day, breaking the log jam, shaking up the status quo, sometimes frustrating, always joyful, built a community, working on this anti nuclear treaty specifically for 10+ years, activists, Red Cross, academics, agencies, Milestones-negotiations, adoption, Peace Price, specific moments to celebrate to build the movement, still far to go to have rest of nations join, first categorical prohibition on nuclear weapons [[Category:Issue-Nuclear Weapons]] like biological, chemical, land mines, and comprehensive, all possession, practices to sharing-all outlawed, only on states which have ratified TPNW, 1st FEMINIST LAW< process to achieve it, countries nuclear free working with survivors standing up to power, disrupting make dominance, who gets to have a say, challenges and creates equal footing for activists & Survivors to have a say recognizes disproportionate impact on women/girls/indigenous/Hibakusha, 1st agreement on victims assistance and nuclear remediation, ground breaking>>>

NO comment from US right now is actually kinda ok in my view... tired of NPR and other media dismissing the Treaty, but what Ray says--resistence is based on fear--based on ignorance. OUR JOB EDUCATION!

Benine ratified in December, Cambodia ratified today>52 nations, building up states’ parties, difficult to plan ahead these days towards end of 2021 or 2022, galvanize more TPNW support, Countries that provide cover: NATO & Australia, South Korea, Japan as well as the 9 nuclear armed, big thing: Stigmatize and delegitimize nuclear weapons [[Category:Issue-Nuclear Weapons]]! Not surprised nuclear 9 boycotted negotiations, land mines/cluster bombs> USA has not joined either treaties, but limits these, stripped production, universal outcry by international community, governments declaring nuclear deterrence is over, normative impact is beginning to be felt, Divestment also (USA is considering $1 trillion to “Modernize our nuclear force) not from people of negative behavior consider slavery/cigarette bans>>>it comes from WE the People, women for votes, LGBTQ for rights, Black American for civil rights, Now iterative change is being called for by women activists, Nuclear 9 has put immense pressure, presidents to call governments of the nations

Rebecca's Story clearly shows the only way forward is to activate the Divine Heart Energy of Humanity and spreading unconditional love. If the Nuclear holocaust had happened anywhere else other than Japan we would not be seeing the love and grace of how a nation rebounded from the worst tragedy of humanity.

It takes love care and pride in the ability of humanity to love to recover from this holocaust.

Rebecca: inspiring stories: importance of sharing stories and starting conversations, understand the lack of representation, how having Hibakusha in the room impact negotiations/conversations, New Zealand high level political forum for the Pacific nations came together how they would ratify TPNW, threatened by nuclear 9 not to sign, disrupting united front, important to have youth involved, (Same with climate now) important pressing questions, article 6 survivors assistance #1 concern, not yet in force at the forum, we’ll get to it later just TPNW, felt dismissed, upset and wanted to have an in depth conversation about it, bringing in Article 6, not much one an impact until final day, huge impact in UN of having survivors present, share their story that moves the heart-centered leadership, opened with “om mane padme om” youth creative Expressions dance/art/music impact on their families> moved diplomats to tears, dignitaries to work from their heart, their presentations shifted, to include article 6,

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:08 AM)

JG: With a full open, grateful heart: 💜 Reality in our world until August 6, 1945 we lived with our own personal deaths, then Hiroshima and NAgasaki 3 days later, then possibility of species/planetary death from massive death from nuclear weapons, omnipresent specter of immense damage from the push of a single button, could initiate the death nell of our species, nuclear threat has receded into the background, though on hair trigger alert around the world, today the UN banning nuclear weapons is coming into force. Joe Biden’s 1/15 first executive orders extended the START nuclear treaty with Russia-slowing arms race to 1550 nuclear weapons to each USA and Russia

Liliane Mavridara to Panelists and Attendees (11:35 AM)

Thank you Mary

Mary Olson to Panelists and Attendees (11:36 AM)

Gender and Radiation Impact Project www.genderandradiation.org AND Tooth Fairy Project AND Children of Atomic Veterans will be together on a new platform later today--but look at the www.childrenofatomicveterans.org to get the gist...

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:39 AM)

Ray: Not yet sunk in, daily activations leading up to this day, breaking the log jam, shaking up the status quo, sometimes frustrating, always joyful, built a community, working on this anti nuclear treaty specifically for 10+ years, activists, Red Cross, academics, agencies, Milestones-negotiations, adoption, Peace Price, specific moments to celebrate to build the movement, still far to go to have rest of nations join, first categorical prohibition on nuclear weapons like biological, chemical, land mines, and comprehensive, all possession, practices to sharing-all outlawed, only on states which have ratified TPNW, 1st FEMINIST LAW< process to achieve it, countries nuclear free working with survivors standing up to power, disrupting make dominance, who gets to have a say, challenges and creates equal footing for activists & Survivors to have a say recognizes disproportionate impact on women/girls/indigenous/Hibakusha, 1st agreement on victims assistance and nuclear remediation, ground breaking>>>

Ray>>>AS PEACE BREAKS OUT, losing grip on reality of nuclear weapons

Kathryn Alexander, MA to Panelists and Attendees (11:39 AM)

Has America signed?

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (11:40 AM)

It is my belief that nukes are also obsolete.  No one can guarantee that the guidance systems will not be hacked.

Sharon Truax to Panelists and Attendees (11:40 AM)

so moving...Mary

Shannon McArthur to Panelists and Attendees (11:40 AM)

There is no “America” to sign - it is the US, Canada and Mexico.

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:40 AM)

Kathryn-no USA has not yet signed.

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (11:40 AM)

US has not signed.  Also threatened, coerced other nations to not sign

Shannon McArthur to Panelists and Attendees (11:41 AM)

Biden will change that, imho

Kala to Panelists and Attendees (11:41 AM)

Has Biden/ Harris commented specifically on it?

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (11:41 AM)

Watch the 2nd Amendment being used to defend “right” too have nuke guns!!

Kathryn Alexander, MA to Panelists and Attendees (11:41 AM)

Thank you - so sad...

Julie Wolf to Panelists and Attendees (11:42 AM)

Kamala Harris - Ratify this!

Mary Olson to Panelists and Attendees (11:42 AM)

2016 UN Office of Disarmament Civil Society Engagement in Disarmament Processes THE CASE FOR A NUCLEAR WEAPONS BAN is a classic. Posted on Amazon--but no charge https://s3.amazonaws.com/unoda-web/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/civil-society-2016.pdf

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (11:42 AM)

US has over 800 bases around the world that relate to nukes.

Mary Olson to Panelists and Attendees (11:43 AM)

UNODA Report has chapter with my findings, and also a chapter by Ray. Edited by Kathleen Sullivan of Hibakusha Stories

Avon Mattison to Panelists and Attendees (11:44 AM)

“Peace breaking out” through the UN’s TPNW Entry into Force. Thank you Cynthia and each of you Panelists for your dedicated work for this historic Treaty and its implementation!

Kathryn Alexander, MA to Panelists and Attendees (11:44 AM)

What magnificent work!!! Thank you!!

Mary Olson to Panelists and Attendees (11:45 AM)

NO comment from US right now is actually kinda ok in my view... tired of NPR and other media dismissing the Treaty, but what Ray says--resistence is based on fear--based on ignorance. OUR JOB EDUCATION!

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:46 AM)

Benine ratified in December, Cambodia ratified today>52 nations, building up states’ parties, difficult to plan ahead these days towards end of 2021 or 2022, galvanize more TPNW support, Countries that provide cover: NATO & Australia, South Korea, Japan as well as the 9 nuclear armed, big thing: Stigmatize and delegitimize nuclear weapons! Not surprised nuclear 9 boycotted negotiations, land mines/cluster bombs> USA has not joined either treaties, but limits these, stripped production, universal outcry by international community, governments declaring nuclear deterrence is over, normative impact is beginning to be felt, Divestment also (USA is considering $1 trillion to “Modernize our nuclear force) not from people of negative behavior consider slavery/cigarette bans>>>it comes from WE the People, women for votes, LGBTQ for rights, Black American for civil rights, Now iterative change is being called for by women activists, Nuclear 9 has put immense pressure, presidents to call governments of the nations

Ray: banning the bomb to stop it, asked to unratify this treaty, scared and aware this will end nuclear use

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (11:47 AM)

The people of the world use unite against the incredible waste/pollution of resources… for what?! Insanity.  The citizens of nuke countries are mostly unaware of the outrageous cost in resources and health.

Jean Stevens to Panelists and Attendees (11:47 AM)

The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights which Eleanor Roosevelt helped draft is also a way for humanity to bring awareness to the TPWN. https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/

TPNW typo above sorry.

Kurt Krueger to Panelists and Attendees (11:48 AM)

YES, Divestment

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:48 AM)

Cynthia: Universal condemnation as an instrument of nuclear abolition, ICAN campaigns for us to get involved in, cities appeal, nuclear free zones, don’t bang on the bomb campaign, DOn’t bank on the bomb campaign https://jointheban.icanw.org/

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:48 AM)

Divestment is working for climate crisis right now! AS YOU SOW.org

Humanitarian Law begins with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights--which is for every human being: https://www.ohchr.org/en/udhr/documents/udhr_translations/eng.pdf   When we read this list of UNIVERSAL RIGHTS, compare that to one person having the right to end ALL those lives. TPNW says global destruction is NOT A RIGHT.

Kurt Krueger to Panelists and Attendees (11:51 AM)

Put your money in LOCAL Banks that support your city/state. Beneficial State Bank is one of the ones that monitors such companies and NEVER invests in them.

Shannon McArthur to Panelists and Attendees (11:52 AM)

Stanley, Philedelphia is well positioned to respond to this!

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:52 AM)

Ray: Don’t bank on the bomb campaign: banks, pension funds, remove $ from these multinational nuclear producers, Personal dimension look up your bank, see if our $ is invested in nuclear weapons producers, call /email bank ask them to divest, Amalgamated Bank in NYC for how it is possible, withdraw funds from that bank if they will not shift, https://weaponfreefunds.org/ Endorse ICAN city’s appeal supporting prohibition of nuclear weapons, builds on 1980’s nuclear free towns,

My city is GIVING economic INCENTIVES to a new Raytheon industrial site-- we have a lot of work to do here!

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:53 AM)

Ray: Polar plunge into Atlantic to adopt new legislation to engage in our communities,

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:55 AM)

Cynthia: impact spreading across borders, multinational companies, impact on another country, outlaws any assistance with prohibited activities, pressure on any countries to be in compliance can not assist development/deployment/modernization of nuclear weapons, collaborations might be altered, national legislation stating they will not invest in nuclear multinationals or transit across their territories/waters, adjusting behavior even nuclear free countries are entangled unwittingly (Alaska celebrates less uranium mining perhaps!)

Cynthia: single most important thing?

Liliane Mavridara to Panelists and Attendees (11:56 AM)

Marijke Kuipers to Panelists and Attendees (11:56 AM)

Nederlands hasn’t ratified yet, and there are US nuclear weapons here about which we have nothing to say…

Shannon McArthur to Panelists and Attendees (11:57 AM)

So so glad things have changed. Bless you all, and all you do… I must step out for now. I look forward to the AfterChat, though I will be a bit late. See you there! I’ve got more GOOD NEWS!

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (11:57 AM)

Ray: embrace new reality, HAPPENING NOW, CHIPPING AWAY AT POWER/VIOLENCE, spread this message, if nuclear not primary issue, make NUCLEAR a known part of confronting power cosupports each other’s work to build community that change is possible and that we are acting for ending dominating narrative

Gender divers/fluid, intersectional feminists, understanding that we all have variant Xperiences of oppression/dominance, promote not about adding people certain identities/women, MOST IMPORTANT: Create space to change those institutions like  military-industrial complex in it then conform and indoctrinate self to the system, bypass patriarchal structures> to most democratic General Assembly allowing activists/survivors to strategize/shape the treaty, Book Explores the making of this treaty of anti war feminist activist to adoption the TPNW, changed process/discourse/narrative, abolitionist movement, feminist accounting of pressure against it, honest accounting of what went right/wrong, how its possible,

Love to you Kathleen -- To ALL: please check out Kathleen Burkinshaw's LAST CHERRY BLOSSOM story of her mother in Hiroshima, http://kathleenburkinshaw.com/  resonates with Rebecca's story

Jane to Panelists and Attendees (12:08 PM)

Huge gratitude to you Grandmother. She has given us You Rebecca and your vital voice and heart .

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (12:09 PM)

Rebecca: do not talk about Japan/bomb, so different than what actually happened with the bomb, overwhelming, upsetting when first visited Hiroshima, survivors Peace Park, family history (WE Rotary is helping to share a VR Xperience of Hiroshima) Walked thru as a survivor to rescue this American sitting in fromt of the A Bomb dome, as a teacher, how might she help from her space, Hibakusha’s biggest message UNDERSTAND, so decided to make a curriculum of Hiroshima, moved by graciousness in Japan in 2009 dedicated to getting this story out, TEARS & BALLOONS!

Jane to Panelists and Attendees (12:09 PM)

Thank You soo Mmuch Rebecca.

Biden’s nominee for Defense Sec comes from the Raytheon

Kala to Panelists and Attendees (12:11 PM)

what is Rebecca’s film bane and how can we watch it/ find the curriculum?

MALINI Rajendran to Panelists and Attendees (12:11 PM)

Rebecca's Story clearly shows the only way forward is to activate the Divine Heart Energy of Humanity and spreading unconditional love. If the Nuclear holocaust had happened anywhere else other than Japan we would not be seeing the love and grace of how a nation rebounded from the worst tragedy of humanity.

It takes love care and pride in the ability of humanity to love to recover from this holocaust.

Sharon Truax to Panelists and Attendees (12:14 PM)

Rebecca....”knowing the truth, will set us free”.  beautiful heart work.

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (12:15 PM)

Rebecca: inspiring stories: importance of sharing stories and starting conversations, understand the lack of representation, how having Hibakusha in the room impact negotiations/conversations, New Zealand high level political forum for the Pacific nations came together how they would ratify TPNW, threatened by nuclear 9 not to sign, disrupting united front, important to have youth involved, (Same with climate now) important pressing questions, article 6 survivors assistance #1 concern, not yet in force at the forum, we’ll get to it later just TPNW, felt dismissed, upset and wanted to have an in depth conversation about it, bringing in Article 6, not much one an impact until final day, huge impact in UN of having survivors present, share their story that moves the heart-centered leadership, opened with “om mane padme om” youth creative Expressions dance/art/music impact on their families> moved diplomats to tears, dignitaries to work from their heart, their presentations shifted, to include article 6,

Rebecca Irby and PEAC Institute - Peace, Education, Art, Communication Institute.   www.peacinstitute.org

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (12:16 PM)

Santa Fe resident (New Mexico is the heart of nuke bomb plutonium pit nightmare), Adam Horowitz’s film, on the victims of the South Pacific testing:  https://vimeo.com/ondemand/28826      Yes, we must approach this via the heartstrings.

Title of the film is “Nuclear Savage”, an excellent film.

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (12:22 PM)

CL: matter of the heart, open with personal story, intersectionality with climate/social justice/ abolition, how do you engage youth? structures need to be disrupted by speaking truth to power, connect what is important to inspire others to join in, can devour you> always something to do, never ending never enough> from having given everything and having nothing left then if not sustainable how can continue to find the joy, incorporate this into what is passionate: inclusion/diversity> White supremacy and racism incorporated into everything in the USA lives, power, in other countries it is gender FEMALE mysogeny, bring up slavery foundation of the America’s North and South, nuclear is a weapon of power/control, discuss different realities, depending on color of skin, depending on time of year can pass either way, treated differently if seen as black or white, if working on climate: DIVESTMENT! https://fossilfreefunds.org/ need trillions locked up in nuclear weapons, stop spending on this Existential threat

AMY A BLUMENSHINE to Panelists and Attendees (12:24 PM)

$72.9 billion wasted on nuke bombs by the nine nuke countries in 2019. Imagine all the education, sustainable agriculture, health and housing that could have been spent on the global humanity!

Kat Haber to Panelists and Attendees (12:29 PM)

Alas, while we have this loud set of violent aggrieved men in the US, we need to be strategic in the US about “taking away” their nukes.
