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.
