For instance, on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, I learned . . .
There is a real debate happening right now in the UK about eliminating nuclear forces there:
|VOTE AGAINST TRIDENT|
As my MP I'm asking you to vote against
Trident replacement on Tuesday 20 January.
£100bn on a Cold War relic that does nothing
to secure us could be better spent on the
NHS, education and public services.
Meanwhile, people in the U.S. are wising up to the way the "nuclear threat" posed by Iran is being demagogued:
|"The end of [Iran] negotiations isn't an unintended|
consequence of Congressional action. It is very much an
intended consequence."(Senator Tom Cotton)
Luckily, the nuclear abolition movement is alive in the U.S.:
|Global Zero tweet for January 24, 2015,|
"Say NO to $1 Trillion Nuclear Arsenal"
protest in Washington, D.C.
And people recognize the threat posed by nuclear weapons is real and urgent:
|What would happen if a nuclear weapon exploded over Chicago?|
What's left to do? We need you to help put the power of network to work and bring about real nuclear abolition!
