While the dangers of nuclear war have risen sharply this year, very few members of the House and Senate have risen to the occasion by speaking out or publicly urging measures to de-escalate tensions between nuclear powers and seriously revive negotiations for nuclear-weapons treaties and disarmament measures. Picket lines on Friday, October 14 (the last weekday before the 60th anniversary of the start of the Cuban Missile Crisis) will present an opportunity for concerned individuals and groups in every state and congressional district to visibly convey their concerns. In keeping with the realities of the current emergency circumstances -- given the Ukraine war, tensions over Taiwan and the overall deterioration of relations between major nuclear powers -- emphasis will be on actions that the U.S. government should take now to reduce the present-day risks of nuclear war.
