Even many in the peace movement don't know that the US has proposed to install 10 interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar military base in the Czech Republic. The missiles and radar taken together constitute an anti-missile system purportedly meant to defend against Iran and other rogue states, but in fact, they represent a new expansion of U.S. global military power and an escalation of the arms race with Russia.

In the Czech Republic, a potent grass-roots movement, the "No Bases Initiative," has formed in opposition to the plan, led by Jan Tamás, Chair of the Humanist Party and a leading member of Europe for Peace. On Wednesday, March 12th at 7 pm, Tamás (Tami) will talk at the Diversity Center of Queens about his experiences in this campaign that has been gathering international attention and support. He will also talk about the development of the Non-Violence Symbol in Eastern Europe and the formation of "living" Non-Violence Symbols around the globe on March 19th (including here in NY) to mark the 5th anniversary of the Iraq invasion.
