On the UN Security Council’s Adoption of the US-Backed Nuclear Nonproliferation Resolution
WASHINGTON - "The Security Council's adoption this morning of the U.S.-drafted resolution on nuclear nonproliferation is a positive step in international efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons and materials and I applaud President Obama for his leadership. It is now time for the Congress to make good on that commitment by ratifying the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
