NEW YORK — May 3, 2010. To bring a stronger cry against the threats from nuclear weapons at this time of the UN Special Session on Disarmament there was a protest inside of the main lobby of Grand Central Station during Monday’s rush hour.

The action was organized by the War Resisters League and their friends from the Catholic Peace Fellowship, The Catholic Worker and others. Protesters carried death heads with the names of the deadly nuclear weapons states, the US, Russia, China, the UK, France, Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea.
