Put an end to nuclear weapons tests

August 29, 2017

In addition to North Korea's recent barrage of missile tests, they have conducted five nuclear weapons tests since 2006. They appear to be preparing to conduct another one. In a matter of days, the U.S. Senate will consider dangerous legislation that could undermine efforts to halt North Korea's nuclear tests. Rather than stigmatize these provocative tests, this bill would signal that the United States is considering a resumption of nuclear weapons tests. Will you tell your senators to oppose this legislation?

Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas' misguided bill is unprecedented for two reasons:

  • First, it reduces funding for the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, which is preparing to verify a ban on testing.
  • Second, it would declare that the United States is not obliged to refrain from nuclear weapons tests.

The worst response to North Korea's tests would be to restart U.S. nuclear weapons tests. Contact your senators today as the international community honors the International Day Against Nuclear Weapons Tests. On July 26, PSR and twelve allied organizations sent a letter to the U.S. Senate urging them to oppose Senator Cotton's bill. Now it's your turn to send a message to your senators to stop this reckless legislation.

The United States ended nuclear tests more than twenty years ago. Help PSR defeat this dangerous bill in order to move forward and build a world free from nuclear weapons.
