Restoring America's Promise

by John Edwards, TomPaine.com

As we mark the anniversaries of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, a critical battle is underway about how to fight poverty in America.

Why No Tea and Sympathy?

"Winter Soldier": An Anti-War Film That Refuses to Be Banned

Like a live hand grenade brought home from a distant battlefield, the 34-year-old antiwar documentary "Winter Soldier" has been handled for decades as if it could explode at any moment.

The Bush Administration's Iranian Nightmare

It seems unimaginable that the world would be forced to endure the horror of nuclear war in a regional dispute, writes Professor Michael Schwartz. However, the record of Bush administration belligerence makes it difficult to imagine America's top leadership giving up the ambition of toppling the Islamic regime in Iran.

Kosten des Klimawandels und der Klimapolitik

Wirtschaftsforscher: Kosten des Klimawandels und der Klimapolitik (10.08.05)

Die ökonomischen Schäden durch extreme Wetterereignisse haben nach Auffassung des Deutschen Instituts für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW) in den letzten drei Jahrzehnten enorm zugenommen. Dies sei eine Folge des globalen Klimawandels. Ohne eine Stabilisierung der Treibhausgaskonzentration auf dem heutigen Niveau seien deshalb zunehmend irreversible und gefährliche Klimaschäden zu befürchten, meinen die Wirtschaftsforscher und plädieren für eine "schnell aktiv werdende Klimaschutzpolitik". Diese könne gesamtwirtschaftliche Schäden von bis zu 200 Billionen US-Dollar bis zum Jahre 2050 abwenden.

"Pro Asyl": Das Vorgehen gegenüber Flüchtlingen wird immer brutaler

Abschiebungshaft: "Das Vorgehen gegenüber Flüchtlingen wird immer brutaler" (10.08.05)

Nach Auffassung der Menschenrechtsorganisation "Pro Asyl" wird das Vorgehen gegenüber Flüchtlingen immer brutaler. Im Fall einer schwer traumatisierten Flüchtlingsfrau aus Tschetschenien werde der Suizidversuch dieser Frau als Argument "missbraucht", sie in Abschiebungshaft zu nehmen. Den zuständigen Gerichten werden rechtswidrige Entscheidungen vorgeworfen.

Deutsche haben scheinbar kaum noch Vertrauen in Politiker

Umfragen & Medien: Deutsche haben scheinbar kaum noch Vertrauen in Politiker (10.08.05)

Nach einer am Mittwoch veröffentlichten Umfrage von TNS Emnid im Auftrag von "Reader's Digest" hat das Ansehen der Politiker im deutschen Volk ein Rekordtief erreicht. Nur noch 17 Prozent der Bürger sollen Vertrauen in die politischen Parteien haben, vor zehn Jahren seien es noch 41 Prozent gewesen. Nach der Umfrage vermissen die Deutschen an ihren Politikern vor allem Glaubwürdigkeit, Ehrlichkeit, Sparsamkeit, Prinzipientreue und Kompetenz. Medien berichten meist kritiklos über derartige Umfragen. Selbstkritik ist kein Thema, dabei entscheiden gerade die Medien über ihre oftmals subtile Berichterstattung maßgeblich mit, welche Politiker populär werden und welche nicht. Wie oft werden gerade in Medienberichten kompetente und prinzipientreue Politiker verhöhnt? Wie oft werden Abweichler in Fraktionen gerade in Medienberichten kritisiert und das Ausüben von Druck durch Fraktionsvorsitzende gerühmt? Kann eine derartige Berichterstattung ohne Einfluss darauf bleiben, welche politischen Inhalte sich letztlich durchsetzen? Kürzlich beklagte sich selbst der einstige "Medienkanzler" Gerhard Schröder über eine Kampagne der Medien gegen ihn.

Politischer Nachschlag:


Da wir die Merkel verstoibert, die Ostdeutschen pauschal diskriminiert, und wenigen nur fällt auf, dass die Ehrlichkeit in der politischen Klasse, meist in diesen Faux pas zu erkennen ist.

Ja, so wird gedacht, so wird gefühlt und so wird lange stillgehalten. Doch dann in eigener Runde bricht es hervor. Erst etwas, dann mehr und auf einmal deutlich.

Machen wir uns bewusst, dass der Irak 1 Krieg mit unseren Steuermitteln bezahlt wurde, dass wir bis heute danke der Regierung Kohl / Merkel noch Zinsen dafür bezahlen. Denken wir an den Knebel für die Wissenschaft bei der Grenzwertverabschiedung bzgl. Elektrosmog, da durfte unter Merkel keiner von den altbekannten und gefährlichen athermischen Wirkungen sprechen, - sozial ist, was Arbeit schafft.

Primitiv und einfältig - sage ich dazu!

Und nun sollen uns 2 % MWSt zur Brutto/ Nettolohnsenkung oder wer weiß auch was das bedeutet, aufgebrummt, und nach nem Jahr sollen diese 16 Milliarden Euro zukünftig die Kinderkrankenversicherung begleichen.

Toll, - wer rechnen kann und dann mit Bilanzierung etwas vertraut ist, erkennt, dass Kinderspielzeug teuer werden wird, genauso wie Auto, Sprit und vieles, und die Gutschrift erfolgt auf Unternehmerseite.

Gut, wenn es dann noch einen Mittelstand gibt, der dann auch ARBEITSPLÄTZE DRAUS MACHT, schlecht, wenn da wieder die Kapitalgesellschaften abkassieren.

Mann, oder Frau - wann wird bewust, dass nur durch Innovation erträgliches Wachstum entsteht?

Lasst uns mit den Techniken des ausgehenden 19 Jhds. aufhören, entwickelt endlich zukunftsfähige, nachhaltige und auch unseren Enkeln gegenüber verantwortbare Technologien, von Energie bis zur Entsorgung.

Die Grünen, man kann sie mögen, oder auch nicht, die haben als eine der wenigen bekannten Parteien eine echte Zukunftsvision, da blühen nicht mehr nur Sonnenblumen, obwohl das Bild aktueller ist als früher. Pflanzenöle, Bioalkohole statt Terror und feinstauberzeugende Erdölprodukte (bei Einsatz anstatt Erdöl Diesel 70 % weniger Feinstaub im Abgas!).

Sonnenstrom statt Leukämie- schaffenden Atomanlagen. Weshalb kann man in den Flüssen wieder baden, weshalb gibt es wieder Lachse in Deutschland, und warum wird die Energie immer effektiver genutzt?

Weil es die Grünen gibt, die den eingelaufenen Systemen oft moderne Strategien entgegensetzen.

Auch wenn ein Hr. Tritt - ihn wirklich Umenge an Kritik verdient, er ist konsequent und einer der wenigen, der von davor bis danach bei seinen Überzeugungen bleibt und diese taktisch geschickt umsetzt und zum Sinn führt.

Also, lasst euch nicht verMerkeln und verStoibern, denkt an die Kinder, und hinterfragt die Statements und Behauptungen, denn BILD - dir deine eigenen Meinung, und kauf dir nicht die vorverdaute und wieder ans Tageslicht beförderte Springer Weltsicht.

Project for the Exposure of Hidden Institutions (PEHI)

The purpose of the Project for the Exposure of Hidden Institutions (PEHI) is to put together the entire spectrum of hidden organizations and secret societies. Most of you who visit this site have probably heard of the more well-known 'secret societies' like the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bohemian Grove, and the Skull & Bones student society. Two other well known 'secret societies' are Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. The thing is, when you really research these institutes you find that members often disagree with each other, there's considerable infighting, and most members don't seem to be privy to a lot of information from the black world. This is the reason I always wondered how people went from the above organizations straight to the very undefined concept of the 'Illuminati'. Of course, I can see something very strange is going on. For some reason it's possible to suppress information about humanities past, the UFO phenomenon, the supernatural, high profile assassinations, or the true cause of many terrorist attacks. Rather than focusing on one tiny subject, PEHI will attempt to answer how all the above is possible and which persons and institutes are responsible for it.

Pilots get Cataracts - Microwaves and Nitric Oxide

Article in the telegraph yesterday says airline pilots are 3 times more likely than other people to contract the most common form of cataract. This is believed to be caused by cosmic radiation. I believe I read in a Neil Cherry report that there are high numbers of breast cancer in air hostesses for the same reason. If they are going to put masts in planes what will happen to them then.

Once again, this makes me wonder whether superoxide air ions in the enclosed aircraft atmospheres plays a role, reacting with exhaled nitric oxide:

//www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=12589772&dopt=Abstract

May nitric oxide molecule have a role in the pathogenesis of human cataract?

Why is this interesting? Because EMFs alter the natural balance of the small air ions that are so essential to life they are artificially introduced into space craft to keep astronauts alive and well!

So yes, adding further microwaves is asking for trouble unless the issue of air ions is taken into account.

Auch Martin Bott hat mir kürzlich gesagt, dass überall im Land Sendemasten errichtet werden, die keine Mobilfunk- sondern Radarantennen tragen und für die keine entsprechenden Standortgenehmigungen der RegTp vorlägen. Es könne sich nur um militärische/geheimdienstliche Anlagen handeln. In ihrem Buch schreiben die Brüder Bott dazu: „In Deutschland finden sich solche Anlagen fast flächendeckend. Überraschend ist, dass diese Antennen inzwischen nicht mehr ausschließlich verdeckt angebracht werden, wie das wohl früher der Fall war. Allerdings sind diese Antennenanlagen im Gegensatz zu Mobilfunk, Amateurfunk- und Rundfunkantennen ohne jeglichen Hinweis auf den Betreiber. Diese Radaranlagen dienen der geheimen und illegalen Überwachung der Bevölkerung. Für illegale Überwachung der Bevölkerung sind Bundesnachrichtendienst und Verfassungsschutz zuständig. Zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt gehen wir davon aus, dass diese Anlagen alleine der Überwachung dienen. Es kann natürlich nicht ausgeschlossen werden, dass mit ihnen auch Radiofrequenzstrahlung als Waffe eingesetzt wird.“ (Markus und Martin Bott: Der totalitäre Staat, Straubenhardt-Langenalb 2004, S. 282)

David Hook another brain cancer victim

David Hook is a comedian with brain cancer he believes occurred as result of cell phone usage. As we all know, if this happens in 30 year olds, imagine how many children may die from cell phone use even before actual brain cancer is diagnosed? Large numbers of young persons turn to drugs due to depression that may lead to suicide.

Similar scenarios apply to other situations involving "chronic, prolonged EMR exposures at low levels" including bedside appliances/telephone equipment, high frequencies on electrical wiring see //www.electricalpollution.com , telecommunications antennae and possibly homes that are less than 300 ft. from high voltage powerlines see //www.powerlinefacts.com and click on 2002 EMF California Report. Such exposures promote health problems ranging all the way from poor sleep to cancer as result of chronic inflammation.

Prof Olle Johansson's comments on EHS research

Dear Iris,

I certainly agree with starting from true life and real problems, I have argued exactly that model for decades in Sweden.

I would like to promote research to find out the real cause of EHS people's reactions. In this way, one could initiate well conducted studies and draw conclusions from true science. For instance, one needs to make a thorough, complete health survey of EHS persons to find biological and clinical differences, these can then later on be used as scientific "handles" to further clarify the EHS symptoms and to build grounds for a treatment strategy (the "treatment" could, of course, be to entirely remove all microwave sources).

Maybe, dear Iris, you want to add these papers to your list, they are ecological investigations - as you know - so they have perhaps an ever greater impact on the whole issue.

Bush vacations while soldiers die

Niagra Falls Reporter
by Bill Gallagher

08/09/05

The worst commander in chief in American history is relaxing, escaping from reality, and enjoying his five-week vacation down on the ranch. Maybe he should spend a little time reviewing his war plan for prevailing in Iraq, thinking of a way to end the carnage and get U.S. troops home safely. Such a review is clearly in order, but don't count on this commander in chief questioning his own judgments and actually considering the possibility that he's made horrible mistakes and miscalculations. The war in Iraq is all about politics, and George W. Bush practices the politics of Karl Rove. Change the focus. Change the debate. Confuse and conquer. Call what you're doing something else. But even when the overwhelming evidence points to grievous error, never admit it...

Sheehan draws tears of support

Common Dreams
by Greg Moses

08/09/05

When Robert DeLozier saw the story of Cindy Sheehan on television Sunday, he told his spouse right away: 'I'm going up there. We have to drop everything and go.' At the Sam's Club of all places, says Robert, he nearly broke down crying while he was shopping Monday morning thinking about what Sheehan was doing in memory of her son Casey, who was killed in Iraq last April. 'She's a strong woman,' says Robert via cell phone as he drives back home Monday night. 'She feels she has been wronged. She feels her son has been wronged. And she feels like this whole occupation of Iraq is wrong. She is strong and powerful enough to take a stand. When I see it, it just strikes a chord. She's speaking truth to power. That's it. David and Goliath.' [editor's note: Sheehan's vigil is making headline news around the country; her son would be very proud. This is a wonderful example of what one brave, determined individual can do to mobilize others.

"Flip-flopping" Americans

Salon
by Eric Boehlert

08/10/05

Taking peculiar pleasure in trying to discredit the small-town mother, right-wingers have been in a tizzy over what they perceive as a flip-flop by [Gold Star Mother Cindy]Sheehan on Iraq. They excitedly reassure themselves that her alleged inconsistency about the war ought to disqualify her from being a legitimate war critic. Problem is, the oddly playful bloggers, busy mocking Sheehan as a 'crazy,' 'exploited,' 'left-wing moonbat,' aren't really staring down a lone mother who may or may not have shifted her opinion about Bush and the war since 2004. If the Republican National Committee-fed bloggers looked up from their monitors for a few seconds, they might realize that when they're done with Sheehan they're going to have to discredit a few million other Americans -- because, as recent polls indicate, they, like Sheehan, have turned on the war and place the blame for the mess squarely on Bush's shoulders...

No sympathy for the neocons

08/10/05

Sweet neocons, why are you soooooooo wrong? The answer is they're never wrong -- in any conflict between reality and their 'idealistic' philosophy, it is the former that must give way. As war clouds hover darkly over Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, and the first few premonitory bolts of lightning split the sky, another Jagger song rises up from the vale of memory, like a ghost mocking us down through the years .... I have no sympathy for the Devil, but I want to understand him: these days a thorough familiarity with evil is absolutely necessary, and not only for us pundits. Toward that end, the lyrics of Jagger's 1968 hit song might almost be taken for a narrative about the long and treacherous history of the neoconservative cult, from its origins on the radical Left ...

Sooner or later, the links between base station emissions and adverse health effects will be established beyond any doubt

Sooner or later, the links between base station emissions and adverse health effects will be established beyond any doubt (even that of the HPA) and it will be impossible for HMG to deny reality. Meanwhile, pressure should be applied on the Government by every available means to force a complete rewrite of planning policy relating to telecoms installations - the provisions of the Spring and Stunell private members' bills would constitute an appropriate starting point. There is evidence that more and more MPs are taking an interest in the concerns of their constituents about masts and it is imperative to keep pushing them - both in terms of circulating to them the results of new scientific research as and when it is published, and continuing to call for changes to policy and associated regulations.

At the same time, we must work on the local authorities. Far too many council executives and their planning officers appear to take the view that it is they who make the decisions at local government level. Their modus operandi oft stresses that elected members should not interfere with the decision making process and comprises the issue of barely hidden threats against any councillors having the temerity to question this supposed primacy. The truth is, of course, that these officials are merely advisers; it is the elected members who are the decision makers, responsible for considering the advice given but also taking into full account the views expressed by their electorate. As an example of but one illustration of how processes have become warped, I was recently involved in a prolonged exchange with a campaign group. At issue was a proposal for a 15 metre free-standing mobile phone mast - with a determination of 'prior approval' to be considered under the provisions of the GPDO (General Permitted Development Order). It was clearly most important for this to go to committee. During negotiations with council officials, the group was informed that the proposal could not go before a planning committee because of "the statutory requirment for all applications for prior approval to be determined by the chief planning officer under delegated authority". There is, of course, no such statutory requirement. There might, just might, be a local arrangement whereby councillors have given their officials such powers as a means of filtering business, but what is given can quite easily be taken away! I explained the reality to three local councillors purporting to be in strong support of the local campaign group. All to no avail. Despite intense pressure from the group, they elected to accept the words of the Chief Planning Officer at face value and took no action to ensure committee consideration. The application was duly approved.

In my view, the councillors concerned abrogated their responsibilities to their electorate - but this sort of thing goes on all the time. Accordingly, we must ensure by all possible means that councillors fully understand their role as elected members and the relationship that should exist between themselves and the 'paid help'. I would contend that their responsibility to the electorate that voted them in should in many areas transcend other considerations. If more councillors were to stand up and be counted - in other words support local people in refusing mast applications regardless of central government policy as articulated in PPG 8 - the message simply could not be ignored. Were just about every application to be refused, the Planning Inspectorate would grind to a halt and HMG would be forced out of its complacency. Albeit through local councillors, the people would have spoken and their message heard!

As one member of the public was moved to plea during last month's Forum in the House of Commons: "Please can we have our democracy back!"

I don't suppose that this helps much but for what it's worth...

Verständnis für Widerstand

Funkloch in Wachenheim

„Verständnis für Widerstand"

Zum Artikel „Widerstand gegen Mobilfunkanlagen regt sich" in unserer Ausgabe vom 9. August, der sich mit der Aufstellung von Sendeantennen im Turm der Lutherischen Kirche in Wachenheim beschäftigt.

„Die Erreichbarkeit per Mobilfunk muss überall gegeben sein", erklärt Bürgermeister Nagel in Wachenheim, am liebsten unsichtbar und deshalb wählt man einfach die Kirchtürme dafür aus. So geschah es auch in Bad Dürkheim. Klammheimlich hat man im Turm der Burgkirche eine Mobilfunkanlage eingebaut und vor einigen Monaten noch eine weitere Antenne dazu. Nachbarn und Bürger hatten darauf keinen Einfluss. Niemand der Verantwortlichen fragt nach den großen Problemen, die uns diese Antennen pausenlos bringen. Es gibt keine einzige Nacht, in der wir in Ruhe durchschlafen können. Die Ausstrahlung dieser Antennen raubt uns die Nachtruhe. Ärzte und unabhängige Wissenschaftler warnen vor Folgekrankheiten wie zum Beispiel Krebs. Als simple Antwort hört man von den Betreibern der Mobilfunkanlagen, dass die Grenzwerte in der Belastbarkeit der Bürger eingehalten werden.

Jeder Mensch reagiert anders. Es gibt keine Norm für Belastbarkeit! Unser Schlafzimmer ist zirka 50 Meter vom Turm mit den Antennen entfernt. Wir wissen, was auf die Wachenheimer Bürger zu kommen wird und haben vollstes Verständnis, wenn sie gegen diese Antenne in der Stadtmitte, zwischen den Häusern Sturm laufen.

"The reason they shot us is just because the Americans are reckless," the general said from his hospital bed hours after the July 6 shooting, his head wrapped in a white bandage. "Nobody punishes them or blames them."

Iraq statistics tell grim story

If the US Army and its Iraqi allies are killing as many insurgents as reports indicate they are per month, why is the insurgency intensifying instead of collapsing?

It Has No Other Name: Neo-racism

By Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban

Humanity has paid a high price fighting racism and discrimination over centuries; how could we loose the battle today to similar ideologies covered up in the cloaks of "freedom" and "democracy?"

Globalization And Its Discontents

By Saul Landau

In my America, shopping is the universal spiritual value. Maybe add flag waving and barbecues! But globalization means spreading a culture of corporate brand names and 24/7 sales pitches. Rogue States who refuse to embrace this order are targets of regime change.

A Look Into the Mirror

Whether we like it or not, the nation’s capital is the mirror image of the rest of the country

By Manuel Valenzuela

Washington, like ancient Rome before it, has become, through the course of years breathing the airs of moral degeneration, corruption and greed, the monument for all that is wrong with the nation it represents, a new symbol of debauchery and immorality, a decadent city on a hill whose once noble foundations are now cracking under the weight of unscrupulous entities and malfeasant activities.

Selling Out the Environment

Four years, two failed conference attempts and one filibuster after the Republican leadership first introduced the Bush-backed energy bill into Congress, the controversial legislation was signed into law Monday by the president, yielding a major victory for the White House - and exposing the continued inability of Democrats to rally around a unified vision and stay on message.

World Security With Total Elimination Of All Nuclear Arms

From: Robert Muller Mail1@GoodMorningWorld.org //goodmorningworld.org/

[GMW #749] World Security With Total Elimination Of All Nuclear Arms

Ending War ~ Idea 2987 ~ I was happy to learn that General Butler, former US High Commander of all American nuclear arms and six other US generals have recommended the total elimination of all nuclear armaments on planet Earth.

May I suggest to them a way of getting there: the United Nations Charter provides that the chiefs of armies of the five permanent members of the Security Council should meet in a UN Military Staff Committee which would work out a World Security System whereafter they would disarm the planet. The cold war alas prevented that course from being pursued.

I recommend that General Butler and his colleagues set up a shadow UN Military Staff Committee, work out a World Security System and world disarmament plan and offer them the whole membership of the United Nations.

What One Mom Has to Say to George Bush

© 2005 by Mike Ferner

“That lying bastard, George Bush, is taking a five-week vacation in time of war,” Cindy Sheehan told 200 cheering members of Veterans For Peace at their annual convention in Dallas last Friday evening. She then announced she would go to Bush’s vacation home in nearby Crawford, Texas and camp out until he “tells me why my son died in Iraq. I’ve got the whole month of August off, and so does he.”

Sheehan left the VFP meeting on Saturday morning and is now in Crawford with a couple dozen veterans and local peace activists, waiting for Bush to talk with her. She said in Dallas that if he sends anyone else to see her, as happened when national security adviser Steve Hadley and deputy White House chief of staff Joe Hagin did later that day, she would demand that “You get that maniac out here to talk with me in person.”

She told the audience of veterans from World War Two to today’s war in Iraq, that the two main things she plans to tell the man she holds responsible for son Casey’s death are “Quit saying that U.S. troops died for a noble cause in Iraq, unless you say, ‘well, except for Casey Sheehan.’ Don’t you dare spill any more blood in Casey’s name. You do not have permission to use my son’s name.”

“And the other thing I want him to tell me is ‘just what was the noble cause Casey died for?’ Was it freedom and democracy? Bullshit! He died for oil. He died to make your friends richer. He died to expand American imperialism in the Middle East. We’re not freer here, thanks to your PATRIOT Act. Iraq is not free. You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism,” she exclaimed.

“There, I used the ‘I’ word – imperialism,” the 48 year-old mother quipped. “And now I’m going to use another ‘I’ word – impeachment – because we cannot have these people pardoned. They need to be tried on war crimes and go to jail.”

As the veterans in Dallas rose to their feet, Sheehan said defiantly, “My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don’t owe you a penny...you give my son back and I’ll pay my taxes. Come after me (for back taxes) and we’ll put this war on trial.”

The co-founder of Gold Star Mothers for Peace objected to hearing that her son was among the soldiers lost in Iraq. “He’s not lost,” she said tearfully. “He’s dead. He became an angel while I was sleeping.”

She railed against the notion expressed by officials in the Bush administration that bringing the troops home now would dishonor the sacrifice of those who have died. “By sending honorable people to die, they so dishonor themselves. They say we must complete our mission…but why would I want one more mother to go through what I have, just because my son is dead?”

The Vacaville, California resident said she first heard of Veterans For Peace in early May last year, during a CNN report about an exhibit of white crosses arranged in rows in the Santa Barbara beach. The exhibit was organized by VFP Chapter 54 to memorialize each U.S. soldier killed in Iraq. Her son had died the month before. “I decided there was only one place I wanted to be on Mother’s Day that year, and it was Santa Barbara ,” she told the VFP members in Dallas.

Retired Special Forces Sgt. and VFP member, Stan Goff, today initiated a “Talk to Cindy” campaign to get Bush to meet with Sheehan. Contact information for the White House is: (202) 456-1111 or comments@whitehouse.gov

Appeal by 44 Nobel Prizewinners including Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Joseph Rotblat and Jose Ramos-Horta, 288 Parliamentarians and NGOs, endorsed by the European Parliament and the Australian Senate on March 10 2005, to lower the operating status of nuclear weapons systems.

Contains: --Statement of Endorsement --Model for a draft resolution for UN General Assembly First Committee --List of supporting organisations, and individuals including 44 nobels , and 237 NGOs and Parliamentarians.

Appeal by 44 Nobel Prizewinners, 288 Parliamentarians and NGOs, endorsed by the European Parliament and the Australian Senate on March 10 2005, to lower the operating status of nuclear weapons systems.

Contains: --Statement of Endorsement --Model for a draft resolution for UN General Assembly First Committee --List of supporting organisations, and individuals including 44 nobels , and 288 NGOs and Parliamentarians.

STATEMENT OF ENDORSEMENT

The Distinguished individuals and organisations below, make the following appeal concerning nuclear weapons, and the danger posed by the maintenance of thousands of nuclear warheads and delivery systems on launch-on-warning status.

We call on the governments of the United States, Russia, China, France, and the UK, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea, to support and implement steps to lower the operational status of nuclear weapon systems in order to reduce the risk of nuclear catastrophe and as part of their obligations, affirmed by the International Court of Justice, to achieve the elimination of nuclear weapons under strict and effective international control.

We note that:

1) To this day, thousands of nuclear weapons in the US and Russia are on Launch-on-warning status, and that the megatonnage involved remains more than enough to destroy civilisation and perhaps the human race.

2) That the Indian subcontinent is increasingly on a 'hairtrigger' status.

3) That there have been numerous incidents in which a nuclear exchange involving thousands of warheads could have taken place, and in which the fate of the earth has depended on the correct judgement of a single individual.

4) That the US, Russia, China, France, and the UK have failed so far to make further progress to achieve the total and unequivocal elimination of their nuclear arsenals, as called for under international law.

5) That, in addition to the failure of the 'official' nuclear weapons powers to fulfil their treaty obligations, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea also posses nuclear weapons, and that the risk of their use is very real.

6) That a number of calls have been made by the UN General Assembly and by the European Parliament to lower the operational status of nuclear weapons.

Accordingly we call on the governments of the United States, Russia, China, France and the UK, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea, to:

a) Take immediate steps to lower the operational status of nuclear weapons, and to revise nuclear doctrines, policies and postures to reflect such lowered operational status.

b) To implement in good faith their obligations under international law , to accomplish the total and unequivocal elimination of their nuclear arsenals.

c) To implement the steps toward nuclear disarmament outlined in the '13 steps' of the final declaration of the Year 2000 NPT Review Conference.

d) We call on non- nuclear nations to press for nuclear disarmament in every available international forum especially including the United Nations General Assembly First Committee and the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.

e) We call on legislators worldwide to pass resolutions in national and other parliaments pressing for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons and for nuclear disarmament as mandated by international law.

We draw the attention of legislators and diplomats to the two texts below:

i) A model for a resolution in the UN General Assembly calling for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons (Note that in the process of getting it through the GA First Committee it may experience some alterations in text)

ii) Motion passed by the Australian Senate congratulating Colonel Stanislav Petrov on preventing nuclear war during the Serpukhov 15 incident of Sept 26 1983, and calling for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons.

You are invited to endorse the statement above calling for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons systems, and to give your support to measures such as the texts below.

i) Model for a resolution in the UN General Assembly Calling for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons

Operational status of nuclear weapons
The General Assembly

Convinced that the possible use of nuclear weapons poses the most serious threat to humanity and to the survival of civilisation,

Convinced also that the maintenance of nuclear weapons systems at a high level of readiness-to-use increases the risks of unintentional or accidental use of such weapons which would have catastrophic consequences,

Noting that a high level of nuclear weapons readiness-to-use has contributed to a number of circumstances when nuclear weapons have become very close to being used,

Welcoming steps taken by States possessing nuclear weapons to reduce nuclear risks and prevent nuclear war,

Welcoming particularly the agreement by Russia and the United States of America on the Establishment of the Joint Centre for the Exchange of Data from Early Warning Systems and Notification of Missile Launches, but noting that the agreement has not yet been implemented,

Considering that, until nuclear weapons are eliminated, it is imperative that further steps be taken to prevent the accidental, unauthorised or unintentional use of nuclear weapons,

Expressing its deep concern that thousands of strategic warheads remain on Launch-On-Warning status,

Expressing its concern also about emerging approaches to the broader role of nuclear weapons as part of security strategies, including rationalisations for the use, and the possible development, of new types of nuclear weapons,

Recalling the program of action agreed at the 2000 Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference which called for concrete agreed measures to further reduce the operational status of nuclear weapons systems

Recalling resolutions [specify resolution numbers] on the floor of this assembly have called for reductions in the operational status of nuclear weapons,

Mindful that concrete steps to reduce the operational status of nuclear weapons systems will help reduce tensions, build confidence and support negotiations leading to the elimination of nuclear weapons,

1. Calls for a review of nuclear doctrines emphasising concrete steps to reduce the operational status of nuclear weapons,

2. Encourages States to immediately implement unilateral steps including, inter alia, the rescinding of launch-on-warning policies, and to urgently conclude negotiated steps, pending agreements for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons,

3. Calls on all States possessing nuclear weapons to undertake not to increase the number or types of weapons deployed and not to develop new types of weapons or rationalisations for their use,

4. Calls for further confidence-building and transparency measures to reduce the threats posed by nuclear weapons,

5. Requests States possessing nuclear weapons to report to the 60th session on steps they have taken to implement this resolution

6. Decides to include in the provisional agenda of its 60th session the item entitled "Operational status of nuclear weapons."
