the greatest danger facing humankind
– in fact, all living beings on our planet –
perhaps is the threat of nuclear destruction.
We know that in a nuclear war,
there will be no victors because there will be no survivors.

all the leaders of the nuclear powers,
the scientists and technicians who continue to create these weapons of destruction,
and all the people who are in a position to influence their leaders
to begin to work at dismantling and destroying all nuclear weapons.*
approach the problem.
