A nuclear exchange between the US and Russia would incinerate hundreds of millions of people immediately, and lead to a Nuclear Winter which would slaughter an estimated 7 billion of the Earth's 7.7 billion people, mostly through starvation. A U.S. nuclear strike against China would result in a similar catastrophe.
Call on President Biden, Secretary of State Blinken, Secretary of Defense Austin, and your representatives in Congress, to put in place a policy of No First Use of nuclear weapons as an important step to prevent nuclear war.

Why Safe Skies Clean Water WI is co-sponsoring this event:
- Each F-35 jet can carry two nuclear warheads up to four times more powerful than the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which caused hundreds of thousands of deaths. They are specifically designed to carry the variable yield B61-12 thermonuclear bomb. Some military officials and politicians seem to think that using a “small” nuclear bomb is acceptable.
- The Department of Defense designated the F-35 as a part of its strategic nuclear bomber force in the 2018 Nuclear Posture Review. The F-35 is meant to be a first strike bomber – not a defense vehicle.
- While we have “assurances” from the Air Force, Air National Guard, and Senator Tammy Baldwin that Madison & Dane County are nuclear-free zones and there will be no nuclear weapons here, pilots will be training at Truax to fly the F-35s. They can pick up the bombs elsewhere.
The event will be open to the public to attend at Tenney Park outside of the John Wall Family Pavilion and the entire event will be held outdoors. You are welcome to mail in your lantern if you cannot be in attendance.
- Open to public at 6:30pm for people to create lanterns
- Program starts at 7:30pm
- Lanterns launched at dusk – approximately 7:45-8:00pm
- Sunset is 8:10pm

President Biden: Listen to the world & end the Cuba embargo!
Statement by Alliance for Cuba Engagement and Respect (ACERE)
ACERE condemns the United States’ vote today at the U.N. General Assembly. We call on President Biden to uphold his campaign promise and implement basic, simple and common sense policy changes towards Cuba, particularly while the world continues to grapple with a global pandemic.
There continues to be widespread support across the U.S. for normalized relations with Cuba and an end to punishing, illegal sanctions that continue to inflict harm and poverty on the Cuban people. 80 Members of Congress wrote to Biden in early March calling for immediate action to restore Obama’s policy towards Cuba and move towards ending the embargo. U.S. citizens are passing dozens of citywide resolutions calling for bilateral cooperation; they have raised over $400,000 to send syringes to help Cuba’s vaccination campaign; they are organizing monthly caravans in dozens of cities. Cuban Americans, anxious to help their families back home, have taken the lead in many of these activities.
Today’s vote in the UN sends a clear message to the Biden administration that the world shares the sentiments of a majority of U.S. Americans.
For 29 years, member states of the United Nations have voted on a resolution condemning the U.S. economic, commercial and financial embargo against Cuba. Today, the international community spoke nearly unanimously again, with 184 states against 2 (the United States and Israel). The world community has once again affirmed that this extraterritorial embargo which is effectively an economic blockade is an unjust, cruel and outdated policy that only isolates the United States — not Cuba — from the rest of the world.
