Nuclear Weapons -- Updates in September 2016

Nuclear Weapons Are Getting More Dangerous! January 2016

UPDATES from September 2015 From the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, most peace folks and the general public did not pay enough attention to the nuclear arms race, which was escalating while we were distracted by the Vietnam War.  Likewise, now while people are distracted by other parts of the world, the U.S. is provoking Russia into a new Cold War and increasing the dangers of nuclear war.  The Olympia FOR’s October-November 2015 newsletter and www.olympiafor.org are publicizing realities that deserve our attention and action.

Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action Since 1977, Ground Zero has brought people together to work for an end of nuclear weapons. The Ground Zero Center is located next to the Trident Nuclear Submarine Base at Bangor in Kitsap County, WA.

New Efforts to Reduce Nuclear Weapons to “Zero” – and Other Articles for Peace
www.cdi.org
The Center for Defense information is a highly credible longtime organization of experts, including high-level retired military persons, who believe U.S. militarism has gone too far at too much cost and with too much risk for world peace. They publish The Defense Monitor, which is full of authoritative articles on these topics. The April-May-June 2009 issue, for example, has an article urging the abolition of nuclear weapons through the “Global Zero” campaign, another article on the same topic(“The Moment for Eliminating Nuclear Weapons is Now”), an article opposing the Pentagon’s pork-barrel spending, and an article arguing that we could help the U.S. economy by reducing military spending.
