A group of women were captured having a bizarre mass wedding where they wore white dresses to marry trees.

The ceremony was organized by nature activists. During the ceremony, which held in the Peruvian capital Lima, they pledged to look after the trees until they were parted by death.

The wedding was organized by Peruvian artist and activist Richard Torres, who is famed internationally for his pro-tree performances. At the ceremony, leaves were used instead of confetti and brides kissed the tree trunk after taking their vows.

The officiating “priest” was Richard Torres while the brides were local actresses he had persuaded to perform for the occasion.

Torres said: “We are giving a message of peace, giving a message to make people aware of the need to take care of trees.”

Patricia Serra, one of the brides, said: “This event is to make people aware of the need to love trees and this is a commitment that is going to be for the rest of your life, it is the same as a common wedding, making a promise. Trees do not have a voice but we all are listening to their protests and therefore we are here.”

The aim of the event was to remind Peruvians of the value of trees and the need to look after them.

Source: Reuters – NATO urged Russia on Tuesday to destroy a new missile before an August deadline and save a treaty that keeps land-based nuclear warheads out of Europe or face a more determined alliance response in the region.

NATO defense ministers will discuss on Wednesday their next steps if Moscow keeps the missile system that the United States says would allow short-notice nuclear attacks on Europe and break the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).

“We call on Russia to take the responsible path, but we have seen no indication that Russia intends to do so,” Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference. “We will need to respond,” Stoltenberg said.

He declined to go into more details. But diplomats said defense ministers will consider more flights over Europe by U.S. warplanes capable of carrying nuclear warheads, more military training and the repositioning U.S. sea-based missiles.

The United States and its NATO allies want Russia to destroy its 9M729/SSC-8 nuclear-capable cruise missile system, which Moscow has so far refused to do. It denies any violations of the INF treaty, accusing Washington of seeking an arms race.

Without a deal, the United States has said it will withdraw from the INF treaty on Aug. 2, removing constraints on its own ability to develop nuclear-capable, medium-range missile.

The dispute has deepened a fissure in East-West ties that severely deteriorated after Russia’s seizure of Crimea and its involvement in Syria.
