Making a statement

Posted

On Jan. 22, members of Pax Christi RI held an 18-foot banner in front of U.S. Sen. Jack Reed’s office at Chapel View in Cranston. The organization is calling on Reed, U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and other members of the Senate to back the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, or TPNW. The agreement, which has been signed by more than 80 nations, took effect the same day. Pictured taking part in the demonstration are, from left, William Smith, Pat Fontes, Madeline Labriola and Bill Waters. “Nuclear weapons pose an existential threat to people everywhere. These weapons could destroy the human race. Currently, the best hope for preventing accidental or intentional nuclear war rests in the new U.N. Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons,” Waters said in a statement. (Herald photo by Steve Popiel)
