Nuclear weapons: Global Zero is comingThis petition is addressed to Presidents Obama and Medvedev
Eligible Signatories: All free people of this universe are eligible
A nuclear weapons proliferation crisis is rapidly building in North Korea, Iran and beyond.
But out of the spotlight, Global Zero, a new alliance of prominent diplomats, military and civic leaders, is beginning to persuade the nuclear powers that there is only one answer to solve this crisis: the elimination of all nuclear weapons.
Presidents Obama and Medvedev are meeting next week. Let's call on them to put their historic pledge into action and lead global efforts to achieve a nuclear free world. Sign the declaration below and help build a massive citizen call to action. Global Zero leaders will deliver it directly to the Presidents of the US and Russia.
WE believe that to protect our children, our grandchildren and our civilization from the threat of nuclear catastrophe, we must eliminate all nuclear weapons globally. We therefore commit to working for a legally binding, verifiable agreement, including all nations, to eliminate nuclear weapons by a date certain.
UPDATE 6 July - Today Presidents Obama and Medvedev have committed to cut their nuclear arsenals by up to a third. This is a first step in the right direction. Let's keep the pressure on the US, Russia and other nuclear powers so they take bolder action to achieve a nuclear weapons free world. Tell your family and friends to get involved (see below). Global Zero leaders will deliver our message as they engage in high level meetings with all nuclear powers.
