Join WILPF Pittsburgh and co-sponsors for a Zoom video watch party/discussion of “The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons,” at 7 p.m. on Jan. 22, 2021 to commemorate the day that the International Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) enters into force (EIF).
The documentary film (made in 2017) explains the process of getting the treaty ratified by 122 UN states and the role of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, ICAN, which won the Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts. The story is told through the voices of leading activists from several different organizations and countries and the president of the negotiating conference. It is 54 min. long.
