“The nuclear “football” contains the launch codes to be used by the President of the United States to order a nuclear strike against enemies. The decision to open, let alone use, the “football” is shrouded in extraordinary secrecy, requiring the highest security clearance. The “football” is but one small part of a vast nuclear-military complex that most Americans know very little about. Yet, these weapons “give a very small number of people the power to annihilate very large numbers of people.” The secrecy, speed and scale of nuclear weapons used in battle makes Congressional authorizations of war useless, violating a constitutional requirement and undermining democracy Yet, American taxpayers will pay more than $1.5 trillion dollars over the next 30 years on nukes!” – Dr. Venugopal What can we do about it? This talk will discuss how the global movement to abolish nuclear weapons is fundamentally a struggle, not only for peace, but for democracy! Prasad is an Associate Professor of Physics and affiliate faculty in the African American Studies Program at the University of Detroit Mercy. He has written numerous articles and spoken widely on US foreign policy issues, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel-Palestine, India-Pakistan and Global Nuclearization.

Citizens for Peace present a discussion - Why Safe, Affordable Water is a Human Right, with People's Water Board members Lila Cabbil & Kim Redigan Thousands of families in Detroit are living without water as a result of water shutoffs, while people in Flint continue to suffer the effects of having been exposed to toxic water. This presentation will focus on the human, health, and social cost of unsafe and unaffordable water and raise questions about the political and economic policies behind the crises in Detroit, Flint, Highland Park and beyond. Some of the questions they will explore include: Is water a commons or a commodity? What is the difference between the existing water assistance plans and the Water Affordability Plan that was passed by the Detroit City Council but never implemented? Why is bottled water not the solution? Lila Cabbil is a founding member of the People's Water Board and represents the Raymond and Rosa Parks Institute, and Kim Redigan represents the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights. Questions?
