Victory! Divine Strake Cancelled! Thanks to all WILPF members who helped defeat it!

This time concerted action by the Shoshone people and many others affected by past U.S. nuclear tests have succeeded in gaining an indefinite suspension of the test. Read the opinion article by Robert C. Koehler of Tribune Media services on the cancellation. WILPF endorsed the Shoshone people's efforts to stop the test including the court case and the May 28 demonstration at the Nevada test site. MacGregor Eddy of the DISARM! Dismantle the War Economy Committee and Barbara Taft of the Women Challenge US Policy: Building Peace on Justice in the Middle East (WCUSP) Campaign represented WILPF at the May 28 event. Read Barbara Taft's report (with photo) on her experience there.
