Ask your Members of Congress: Stop the new arms race
August 4, 2017
Each year, on the anniversaries of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9), the world takes a moment to reflect on the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons. Will you take a moment today to tell Congress to stop the new arms race?
This year, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki anniversaries follow historic events at the United Nations: on July 7th, 122 out of 124 nations at a UN conference voted to adopt the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.This treaty outlaws nuclear weapons based on their humanitarian impact. Hiroshima survivor Setsuko Thurlow told the UN delegates: "I have been waiting for this day for seven decades and I am overjoyed that it has finally arrived. This is the beginning of the end of nuclear weapons."
Unfortunately, along with the other nuclear-armed countries, the United States boycotted the treaty negotiations. Ambassador Nikki Haley also issued a statement on July 7th indicating the U.S. will not sign the treaty, and the U.S. House and Senate are considering budgets that support a vast nuclear weapons spending binge with a price tag of $1.2 trillion over the next 30 years. Please sign on to PSR's petition to tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to freeze spending on the nuclear weapons buildup and support the nuclear weapons ban treaty.
