For Immediate Release
Statement on Trump Davos Speech from ICAN
WASHINGTON - “Donald Trump just said we have to de-nuke North Korea. Rather than trying to threaten them with more nukes and make it more likely to use them, the best way he can make sure North Korea does not have nuclear weapons is to join the Treaty to ban those weapons. That is how the majority of the world is moving towards nuclear disarmament.”
- Beatrice Fihn, Executive Director of ICAN
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
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.
