Veterans to President Biden: Just Say No to Nuclear War!

To mark the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, September 26, Veterans For Peace is publishing an Open Letter to President Biden: Just Say NO to Nuclear War!  The letter calls on President Biden to step back from the brink of nuclear war by declaring and implementing a policy of No First Use and by taking nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert.  

VFP also urges President Biden to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and to provide global leadership for the total elimination of nuclear weapons. 

The full letter has been published on the VFP website and offered to mainstream newspapers and alternative news sites. A shorter version is being shared with VFP chapters and members who may wish to publish it in local newspapers, possibly as a letter-to-the-editor.

The Open Letter was prepared by members of the VFP Nuclear Abolition Working Group, which meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month at 6 pm Eastern, 5 pm Central, 3 pm Pacific.  For more information, contact vfp.nonukes@gmail.com.
