Ban Nuclear Weapons

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

One hundred and twenty-two countries have voted in favor of a treaty that would totally ban nuclear weapons. The United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons would not only disallow countries from stockpiling the weapons of mass destruction, but also ban threatening their use. U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres has described the treaty as an “important step towards the universally-held goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.”

“The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is the product of increasing concerns over the risk posed by the continued existence of nuclear weapons, including the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences of their use,” he said.

There’s just one problem; despite the widespread international support for the treaty, nuclear-armed states refused to even join the negotiations. This includes the world’s largest military power, the United States. If you believe the U.S. should be a leader – not a pariah – when it comes to nuclear disarmament, please sign this petition.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

The world wants to be free from the scourge of nuclear weapons once and for good. This was convincingly illustrated by a recent U.N. vote calling for a treaty that would totally prohibit nuclear arms, including the threat of their use. Sadly, the U.S. and other nuclear powers refused to join the rest of the world in backing this treaty. Because of this, there’s no end in sight for the risk of nuclear war, not to mention the threat of armament malfunctions, theft by non-state actors and accidental deployments.

We’re all at risk because the world’s most powerful countries refuse to join the negotiating table. We therefore call on the U.S. to take a leadership position on this issue, and endorse the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The future of humanity could depend on it.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The world would be much better place without them! No Nukes!

    • Raleigh, while I agree that the world might be a better place without nuclear weapons I certainly don’t want my country to be without them while the idiots such as North Korea have them. Make sense? It would be like disposing of my firearm while walking through Chicago!!

    the U.S. should be a leader – not a pariah – when it comes to nuclear disarmament : avoid nuclear bombings which result in earthquakes, hurricanes and planet destruction.

  4. The problem is the likely hood of us getting North Korea, and Russia to get rid of theirs, despite what we do, ESPECIALLY NK, is slim to none, AND even if by some MIRACLE that happened, they are NOT going to let us into their countries to make sure they’ve all been destroyed, and they’re not going to fess up to any left in hiding, so it’s not NEARLY as easy as it sounds! Still signed, though.

  5. I don’t understand you guys, I really don’t. You guys hate anything that comes out of Trump’s mouth, you think everything he says is wrong. Yet, you are calling on him to help your cause. Please explain how that happens.

  6. KICK ALL OF THE PERSONS RESPONSIBLE OUT OF THEIR PROFESSION AND LET THEM PAY REPARATION TO FUTURE GENERATIONS!
