National Security and Human Security

Ambassador Prudence Bushnell: "National Security and Human Security - Can We Have Both?"

Tuesday April 16, 5:30pm
CMU 120

Henry M Jackson School of International Studies.
Prudence Bushnell looks through a feminist eye at lessons of policy and leadership learned from the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and the 1998 Al Qaeda bombings in Kenya – where she was serving as ambassador – and Tanzania.  As she provides highlights of her experiences in the Washington inter-agency community and ambassador to the republics of Kenya and Guatemala,  she will open the discussion to “smart”

power as an alternative to “soft” or “hard”  power.  Her book, “Terrorism, Betrayal and Resilience: My Story the 1998 U.S. Embassy Bombings” provides further insights into the national security arena.

WANW Tabling at Youth Climate Strike

WANW has been invited to table at the Youth Climate Strike to draw connections between climate, nuclear weapons and health for young people. Join us! Contact carly@wpsr.org.

Youth Climate Strike statement: “We, the youth of America, are striking because decades of inaction has left us with just 11 years to change the trajectory of the worst effects of climate change, according to the Oct 2018 UN IPCC Report. We are striking because our world leaders have yet to acknowledge, prioritize, or properly address our climate crisis. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation —especially communities of color, disabled communities, and low- income communities—  are already disproportionately impacted by climate change. We are striking because if the social order is disrupted by our refusal to attend school, then the system is forced to face the climate crisis and enact change”. See more information here

Making Waves:

Film screening,  discussion and action to Abolish Nuclear Weapons! Historic Sailboat Project Supports UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons

Golden Rule S/V Crew member and Golden Rule Project Ambassador, Zoe Byrd, will show the 25-minute documentary, “Making Waves: Rebirth of the Golden Rule about four Quaker peace activists, led by Navy veteran Albert Bigelow, who in 1958 set sail to the Marshall Islands influencing public demand that ended underwater, atmospheric, and outer space nuclear bomb tests in 1963.  The historic peace boat later sank, in 2010, and was rebuilt in Humboldt Bay, California.  The Golden Rule, a Project of Veterans For Peace, is once again “Sailing for a Nuclear-Free World and a Peaceful, Sustainable Future”.

Zoe Byrd, involved in the peace movement since 1977, and an avid “Peace Walker”, as well as sailor, will take questions after the film, about the Golden Rule, opportunities to crew on the peace vessel, and more. Zoe is excited to present the ICAN Cities Appeal, where all over the world, cities are taking the lead and calling on their governments to join the UN Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Highly regarded guest speaker, Peter Lumsdaine, a member of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (WPSR)'s Nuclear Weapons Abolition Task Force and of national PSR's Committee to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, has worked for over two decades in the nuclear resistance and global eco-justice movements, including on the staff of leading-edge NGOs. This work has taken him from the military conflict zones of Mexico, the Philippines, Korea, and occupied Iraq to the the inner security areas of US Strategic Command bases and the cell-blocks of the American prison system.  


Peter will speak about the inspiring heritage of, and urgent potential for, mass nonviolent direct action to push toward nuclear abolition - and about how we can curb the rise of corporate/military Artificial Intelligence systems that are rapidly automating global conflict and the command of nuclear arsenals.

This educational, fundraising event is a call to action and is free to the public

NuclearBan.US in Port Angeles

Vicki Elson and Timmon Wallis are co-founders of NuclearBan.US, a partner of  ICAN, which won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for its role facilitating the 2017 U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  They'll be in town to explain how the Treaty is the game-changing tool that can lead to the total elimination of nuclear weapons, before they eliminate us.  Those already working on the issue will receive updates about how to use the Treaty to get to the next level.     

Their strategy goes beyond asking politicians to pass resolutions: they support individuals, organizations, cities and states to align themselves with the Treaty by boycotting and divesting from the nuclear weapons industry.  Come and learn how you can literally help save the world, and share in the Nobel Peace Prize too.  Spread the word!
