At 1:30 this afternoon, thousands of people gathered in Times Square to rally and march for a world without nuclear weapons. Despite an attempted car bomb attack the night before in Times Square (and the 90 degree heat during the day), people still showed up in huge numbers, and carried on with nothing to fear.
May 2010 is a critical time for nuclear security. The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference will be held at the United Nations from May 3rd to the 28th. Prior to the start of the Review Conference, an International Day of Action will take place this Sunday, May 2nd, in New York City.
