ICAN Statement on US Nuclear Posture Review
WASHINGTON - Statement from Beatrice Fihn, Executive Director of ICAN:
"The US already has the nuclear ability to destroy the world many times over. The idea that they need more and not less nuclear weapons would be laughable if it wasn't so dangerous. The rest of the world is moving towards a total ban of nuclear weapons, while the US is planning to develop weapons they admit they are more likely to use. There are only two possible endings to this story: either the end of nuclear weapons or the end of us all."

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a coalition of more than 400 non-governmental organisations in 95 countries. We are calling on governments to launch negotiations on a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons, which would place them on the same legal footing as chemical and biological weapons and help pave the way to their complete elimination.
