Last Night Lower Bucks CFPA Quarterly Potluck Supper – Ward Wilson spoke about the US Nuclear Weapons arsenal

We had a great quarterly meeting last night with a Pot Luck dinner (my favorite!).

Ward Wilson spoke about the arsenal of nuclear weapons that the U.S. keeps on high alert and how much it costs to maintain them.   He discussed H.R. 3974 The Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) and our efforts to get Congressman Fitzpatrick to cosponsor this bill.

Wilson is a prize-winning scholar who has spoken widely, including at: the House of Commons in Great Britain, Princeton University, Stanford University, the United Nations, the Naval War College, the University of Chicago, Georgetown University, the Norwegian Defense Studies Institute, Los Alamos, the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Aberystwyth University in Wales, Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Stimson Center, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, as well as others.
 
Given the extent to which we rely on nuclear weapons to preserve the peace, these new findings raise troubling questions.
 
“Wilson . . . is well on his way to deconstructing the most fundamental beliefs
about nuclear weapons.”
– Stephen Schwartz, editor, Nonproliferation Review

Robin Stelly from Penn Action and the members of the Bucks County Council of Moveon.org:

We are NOT satisfied with the Blunt Amendment!

Write a Letter to Protect YOUR Access to Medical Care

Do you want to keep your health care decision a matter for you and your doctor, without getting your boss involved?  Has access to birth control been a positive influence in your life?  Would you like to preserve your children’s access to it?

Please tell your story and share your opinion.  We’ll hand deliver your letters to both Sen. Casey’s and Sen. Toomey’s Philadelphia offices on Thursday March 15!

Write your letter online HERE and we will print them out for the Senators and deliver them in a group.

12/21 Vigil & 12/29 Celebration

All US Troops Home from Iraq!

The Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) is planning two events to celebrate the last US troops coming home (finally!) from Iraq.From 4:00-5:00 PM this Wednesday, December 21, CFPA’s Buxmont chapters are having a Vigil at Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick’s Office in Langhorne, PA, which will also witness for bringing US troops home from Afghanistan.

From 5:30-7:30 PM on Thursday, December 29, the Princeton regional office will host a Celebration of bringing the last US troops home from Iraq at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton.

If you haven’t already done so, please click on the link abovefor all details, then go to the bottom and use the Registerbutton to reserve for you and any guests. The event is free and open to the public,but we do ask supporters to register, so we know how many to expect.
We are delighted that a number of area leaders who played a major role in CFPA’s grassroots campaign to end this War will offer reflections. If you can volunteer to bring any food or drink to share, please also reply to this email.
