|From Alice Slater on Abolition2000:|
This very thoughtful report below from Mia Gandenberger and Ray Acheson at Reaching Critical Will gives you the whole dismaying story of who’s working to ban the bomb and who wants more “steps”, consensus process to never… and maintaining the hegemony of the nuclear powers that be. Please do what you can to move the ban treaty negotiations forward at the UN meetings in the fall. If you live in the US, check out this action alert for next steps in the US https://diy.rootsaction.org/petitions/a-path-toward-abolishing-nuclear-weapons
if we’re really serious about negotiating a treaty with Russia to eliminate nuclear weapons, when 15,000 of the 16,000 bombs on the planet are in Russia and the US!
And if you want to know what Putin himself is saying about all this and what’s needed for nuclear abolition, instead of getting your second hand reports and Russia bashing from the Republicrats and the lamestream media, check out this link which I posted earlier.
