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."
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.
