Don’t Be Stupid, Be Safe!


Human Wrongs Watch

Geneva- Not all stupid things are equal. Some stupid things are far more concerning than others, says the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

“There are 19,000 nuclear weapons around the world. It takes only one to cause a humanitarian catastrophe on a horrific scale, ICAN warns.

“Yet we’ve talked ourselves into having 2,000 of them on hair-trigger alert, ready to be launched within minutes.”

We are potentially only minutes away from the horror of seeing an entire city flattened in an instant, killing hundreds of thousands of people with no adequate humanitarian relief possible, ICAN stresses.

“Its effects would spread across borders and generations.”

“This is madness, not a security strategy.”

There is only one cure for this threat. We have to ban nuclear weapons.

You can read and sign the petition on the ICAN website.
