Tell President Obama: We demand zero!
Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 9, 2013
Four years ago in Prague, President Obama announced his commitment to seek a world without nuclear weapons. He called for perseverance. He dared us to overcome our differences. He challenged us to ignore the voices that tell us the world cannot change.
We’ve just launched a massive grassroots campaign urging him to put those historic words into action. To tell him not only can the world change, but that we demand it to change. Please sign the petition and join us as we call on President Obama to set the world’s course to global zero.
Make history. Demand zero.
This is our moment. It’s going to be big.
All indications are that President Obama wants to make good on his commitment to eliminate nuclear weapons. As a second-term President, he’s in a dare-to-be-great moment to make that happen by calling on world leaders to join him at the negotiating table to eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all. And we’re urging him to do that on April 5th, the anniversary of his historic Prague speech.
We only have a few weeks to make sure the White House gets the message loud and clear! Sign the petition and let President Obama know you demand zero.
Getting to global zero won’t happen overnight. It will take years of work. We can start the process now and President Obama can lead the way. But this kind of bold presidential leadership won’t happen without urgent and sustained support from the public.
When we do eliminate nuclear weapons, it will be because of you.
