In 1950, children across America were inspired to collect coins for UNICEF to aid children abroad enduring the after-effects of World War II. It was not just a charity effort—it was a call to end the needless suffering of their more vulnerable peers around the globe. Since then, for generations of Americans, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of the world’s children

Please join us again to support this important event. I hope we can count on you to help.

Anyone who would like to have UNICEF boxes delivered anywhere in the city, you can call 1-800-FOR-KIDS. Usually they need 2 days notice to deliver.

NOV. 21, FRI: Screening of Breaker Morant with Discussion

Join Fr. Robert Lauder for a viewing and discussion of Breaker Morant.

This film reenacts the court-martial of three Australian soldiers tried for inhumane treatment of prisoners and civilians when fighting on the British side during the Second Boer War (1899-1902) in South Africa. With the British legal team arguing that standard rules of engagement must always be followed, the defense counters that the introduction of guerilla tactics by the Boers makes the violation of such standards inevitable.

WHEN: Friday, November 21, 7:00 pm
WHERE:  St. Francis College Auditorium, 182 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY. By subway: R to Court Street; 2, 3, 4, 5 to Borough Hall; A, C, F to Jay Street/Metrotech

No Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC!!

Lets Say NO!! to Weaponized and Surveillance Drones in NYC.
E-mail grannypeace@gmail.com to receive information on how you can participate in campaign to get NYC Council to vote against bringing drones into NYC.

Check out KnowDrones and Granny Peace Brigade  for info on drones, especially in NYC.

In an article in the May 20 edition of the New York Daily News, reporter Tina Moore comments on William Bratton’s support for the concept of drones in the following way: “Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said the unmanned machines equipped with cameras and tiny microphones could help spy on crime hotspots–like housing projects, where shootings are up about 32% this year.”

Although it’s unlikely that Bratton was naive enough to utter those exact words, it is probable that spying on the citizenry of New York is indeed what he intends to do. His exact words were, “Myself, I’m supportive of the concept of drones, not only for police but for public safety in general . . . It’s something that we actively keep looking at and stay aware of.”

With this warning ringing in our ears, we’re heading for 125th Street to alert the citizenry that drones will be coming–if not tomorrow, certainly within a few years.

You can  choose one point that especially concerns you from the talking points below. E-mail to ddromm@council.nyc.gov.

No More Hiroshimas! No More Nagasakis! No More Fukushimas!

Did you know??
In March 2013, Norway hosted a conference in Oslo on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons, with 127 governments in attendance. The US boycotted this conference! A follow-on conference is scheduled in Mexico in early 2014. The U.S. has not committed to attending.

In May 2013, a new United Nations working group began meeting in Geneva “to develop proposals to take forward multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations for the achievement and maintenance of a world without nuclear weapons.”  The first ever UN High-Level Meeting on Nuclear Disarmament will take place on September 26, 2013,  in New York.  But, the US is refusing to participate in the UN Disarmament Working Group, and has been silent on the September meeting.
