Panel discussion re nuclear (dis)armament in Haifa at 15, Tveria St. Sunday, Nov 17th (Tomorrow)
Eyal Rozenberg

*Sunday, 17.11, at 20:00, in the Community Center at Tveria street no. 15,
Hadar.*

Are nuclear weapons the magic weapons of our century?
Does nuclear deterrence really prevent wars ?
What are the economic interests behind nuclear programs around the world ?
What is the connection between nuclear war and global famine ? If all the
nuclear states declare that they do everything to prevent a nuclear war ,
why do they continue the arms race ?

The Israeli Anti-Nuclear Novement invites you to meet with two
international experts on the topic who will shatter some myths
concerning nuclear weapons:

Ward Wilson , a senior researcher at the British Council for American
security (BASIC) and head of the Rethinking Nuclear Weapons. Wilson has
spread his message in lectures around the globe and is the author of the
award-winning Book “Five Myths About Nuclear Weapons “.

Wilbert van der Seiden senior researcher at IKV Pax Christi , a Dutch
organization for research and policy promotion of peace and security .
Author of the recently published “Do not Bank on the Bomb - World
Report” which shows that 298 financial institutions around the world
invested more than 314 billion in the nuclear industry.

The Event will be hosted by Sharon Dolev , CEO of the Israeli
Disarmament Movement.

The public debate on nuclear weapons in Israel starts and stops with the
Iranian threat . Nuclear weapons are not only a strategic threat in the
hands of an enemy, but they are also an ecological threat that endangers
the entire planet. Nevertheless, we continue to see nuclear weapons a
necessary evil . The believe in Deterrence, the experiences from the Cold
War Era, the end of World War II and the believe, that states are
responsible actors, are just some of the myths that stand between us and a
world without nuclear weapons.

The meeting will be held in English, simultaneous translation to Hebrew
will be provided.
