AT THE TOWN CLOCK, Santa Cruz
• A world without nuclear weapons is not only possible, but a necessity to our human survival. Humanity has the right to live with dignity, free from the fear and threat of nuclear annihilation.
• The possession, use, or threat of use of nuclear weapons is abhorrent to morality and the principles of humanity.
• Any nuclear detonation—whether accidental or intentional—will create a
humanitarian crisis of catastrophic proportions.
• Our governments have a duty to serve the best interests of all people, rather than investing in weapons of mass destruction that can only result in death, poverty, and war. Financial and scientific resources currently being squandered on maintaining nuclear arsenals should be redirected to further social justice and economic equality for all, as well as to address the serious ecological crises resulting from human activity (i.e. climate change).
