Please read Dr. Ira Helfand’s recent CNN op-ed on nuclear weapons in the Donald Trump era.
Ira writes, sagely:
“This March, negotiations will begin at the United Nations for a new treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons. This ban treaty will establish a new international standard that the simple possession of nuclear weapons presents an intolerable danger to human survival. The United States and all the major nuclear powers have opposed this treaty. The United States should change course and embrace this treaty as the next step toward the abolition of nuclear weapons.
The United States should also commence discussions with the other nuclear powers about a more comprehensive nuclear agreement, a nuclear weapons convention, that will set up a verifiable, enforceable process and time line for the elimination of these weapons.”
Please contact the President-elect and your Senator/ Representative. Please call on them to spend $1 trillion dollars on our public schools, not the so-called ‘modernization’ of America’s nuclear arsenal.
