BFP Visits Schumer’s Office
On His Iran Policy
And Demands: ‘Speak Out For Diplomacy!’

May 12, 2015

Under the auspices of Brooklyn For Peace (BFP), a delegation of six peace advocates met with aides to the U.S. Senator from New York, Charles Schumer. Meeting at his midtown Manhattan office, the delegation was a diverse slice of the Senator’s constituents. The purpose of the visit was to let the Senator know of the strongly-held disappointment at his cooperation with some of the Senate’s most virulent pro-war members who have been unstinting in their efforts to derail the negotiations and agreement with Iran, hammered out by the President and John Kerry and five other nations  over disputes with Iran’s nuclear program.

Iran: War or Peace?

2015 May Iran Flyer Image BFP only

The United States and five other countries are about to conclude an agreement with Iran that will settle differences over that nation’s nuclear programs. The agreement will go a long way toward normalizing relations with Iran and establish a regimen on inspection that will guarantee Iran cannot build nuclear weapons.

If successful, the agreement will help calm the Middle East, a region that is boiling with crisis. The Republicans want to kill the agreement with Iran but they can’t do it without help from Democrats.

Senator Charles Schumer is teaming up with pro-war Republicans to undermine the President and destroy any possibility of reaching a settlment with Iran. If successful, Iran will be free to pursue nuclear weapons, our country’s position with its partners will be weakened and a yet another war will be brought much closer.

In the Senate, the GOP is trying, with major help from Charles Schumer, to assemble a vetoproof vote that can scuttle President Obama’s diplomacy.

In the House, a group of Democrats are supporting diplomacy by signing on to Rep. Jan Schakowsky’s Congressional letter… but some of our Bklyn Reps have not signed on..

Call (877) 762-8762 to speak directly with your Senator and Representative’s office on this issue.

Marching For The Future Of Our World.
Marching For Peace And Planet.

► To see photos and videos of the day’s events go here.

Apr 26, 2015

They filled Union Square North by the thousands – a beautiful sight! With banners, posters, balloons and colorful costumes, thousands assembled to listen to speakers and prepare to march to the United Nations. They came to make demands on the world’s leaders who would be assembling this month in NY at the UN headquarters to discuss and debate the 1970 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The demand would be simple: Make the treaty work! Forty-five years after its signing, proliferation of these earth-killing weapons is a tragic fact of 21st century life and the threat of nuclear war continues to hang heavily over the fate of humankind.

Apr 14, 2015

Some seventy residents filed into the Brooklyn Friends meeting hall on Schermerhorn Street last night to hear speakers discuss the twin specters of the age we live in: nuclear weapons and their proliferation and nuclear energy and the threat it poses as solutions to climate change are sought.
