The Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons Becomes Law, by Marie Braun — Rise Up Times

“The U.S., the only nation to ever use nuclear weapons, should take the lead in convening talks with the other eight nuclear nations with the goal of working toward the elimination of these horrendous weapons and becoming signatories of the new landmark Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.”

The Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons Becomes Law, by Marie Braun — Rise Up Times

We’re one of 8 “nuclear” countries who refuse to sign the treaty.  Put pressure on your elected reps.  The last thing Mother Earth and her children need is a nuclear disaster.

    Lisa I never see those countries including the US doing it. They just don’t trust the other…even if they signed some under the table thing would happen…I might be too cynical…hopefully I am.

      You’ve got a point, Max. A piece of paper won’t stop a maniac from pushing the button. That’s why they need to be dismantled. Nuclear power plants need to be dismantled too.

        Sometimes I get a little too cynical for my own good…who knows it could work.

  3. Yes!!! Please!!!

    And while I understand the lack of trust and the thought that ‘it probably won’t happen or do any good anyway’ — ultimately, signing a treaty allows for accountability — and awareness. It is one small step for man that could lead to a giant leap for humankind. ❤

    We still haven’t even properly acknowledged what we did to the people of Japan. (K)
