For Immediate Release

Statement on State of the Union from ICAN

WASHINGTON - "President Trump promotes security based on fear and luck which is both dangerous and reckless. This is not 'Peace through strength,' but instability through terror. The policy has failed to stop proliferation and nearly led to nuclear war through error multiple times. A new security policy with the goal of nuclear abolition is the only way to increase both real and perceived security for the United States and the rest of the world."

- Beatrice Fihn, Executive Director of ICAN

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.

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.
