3D Nuke Missile Amsterdam
August 6, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0
Hiroshima Day action: August 6. No new nukes. No nukes in the Netherlands. No nukes in the world.
Noëlhuis (Catholic Worker Amsterdam) is organising this Hiroshima Day event which will take place in front of the Euronext (Amsterdam) Stock Exchange. The event will include origami crane making (Japanese bird of peace) to hang on trees in front of the stock exchange, plus the 3D Nuke Missile – an interactive piece of street art.
This 3D painting exposes the hidden threat to human civilisation – the thousands of nuclear weapons hidden underground or on submarines under the ocean. Each nuclear weapon is 10-100 times more powerful than the nuclear bomb that destroyed Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. A nuclear weapons launch by accident, miscalculation or intent could trigger catastrophic destruction.
The US wants to deploy new B61-Mod12 bombs in the Netherlands (Volkel) and other European countries,
which could further lower the threshold for nuclear weapons use.
Some of these bombs are deployed in Netherlands (at Volkel) making the Netherlands complicit in illegal and insane nuclear war preparations. What’s even worse is that the US wants to deploy new B61- Mod12 bombs in the Netherlands and other European countries, which could further lower the threshold for nuclear weapons use. Most of the European companies producing nuclear weapons trade on the Euronext Stock Exchange.
Join our action for Hiroshima Day: Interact with the 3D art. Grasp the chain to stop the missile firing. Take a photo. Post on your social media with the hashtag #3DnukeMissile.
And support actions to get rid of the nuclear weapons in Europe, end investments (by cities, pension funds, banks, religious organisations or your own personal investments) in the nuclear weapons industry, and achieve a nuclear-weapons-free world.
