New This Week (June 5, 2017)

IMAGINE ... taking a moment each day to say "thank you" to one of the 100+
countries supporting the #nuclearban ... http://bit.ly/2rNrWO9 … Please RT


With just 10 days until the #nuclearban treaty talks resume at the UN, there's just one question on my mind: can we encourage a GLOBAL movement of support on social media for this effort? (More here and here.)


*    *     *


There are now thirty-six (36) co-sponsors on Rep. Ted Lieu's House bill to rein in presidential first use of nuclear weapons. (And seven (7) co-sponsors on the corresponding bill in the Senate sponsored by Ed Markey.) Will support continue to grow in the rest of June and through the summer?

Update June 6: Eighth co-sponsor joined on the Senate bill: Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

Update June 9: Thirty-seventh co-sponsor joined on the House bill: Rep. Nydia Velazquez of NY.
