Rally For Zero At Nuclear Summit
Tell world leaders at the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit: 15,000 nuclear weapons ≠ security!
Washington, DC – On March 31, world leaders will gather for the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C. to take steps to prevent an act of nuclear terrorism. Their approach is focused solely on securing nuclear material. The world’s 15,000 nuclear weapons — which pose far greater risk of catastrophe — aren’t even on the agenda.
There can be no such thing as “nuclear security” so long as nuclear weapons exist. If we’re serious about preventing a nuclear catastrophe, what we need now is a Nuclear Weapons Summit that brings the key countries together to discuss real, time-bound, actionable plans to eliminate nuclear weapons. Join us as we tell these leaders it’s time to put this at the top of the international agenda!
Dear Summit Participants,
While the Nuclear Security Summit has made important strides to reduce the threat of nuclear terrorism, the fact remains that so long as nuclear weapons exist, we will not be safe. Today, there are more than 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world. The use of even one would be a global humanitarian, environmental and economic catastrophe. We must not wait for the inevitable before we act.
As a critical next step, we urge you to convene a Nuclear Weapons Summit and urgently develop time-bound, actionable, verifiable plans for the complete elimination of all nuclear weapons globally.
Then, join the rally for zero!
Nuclear weapons ≠ equal security
On March 31 & April 1, world leaders are convening right here in DC to talk nuclear security. Not on the agenda: nuclear weapons.
That has to change. There are 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, thousands ready to fire at a moment’s notice. Nuclear weapons jeopardize global security – not strengthen it.
Join us as we rally to show world leaders that 15000 ≠ security. It’s time they take action for zero.
