Report
One of the Principal Authors, Susi Snyder, is an old friend from my years working to shut down the Nevada (nuclear weapons) Test Site (NTS).

United States
226 Financial Institutions made an estimated USD$ 344 billion available to 27 nuclear weapon producing companies since January 2013.


Almost all of my banked money is in a credit union that doesn't appear on the list. However, I do still have an old, small account at NC's BB&T (#33, page 32). I'll close it and tell them why.

Divesting from Warfare

Preventing the First Use of Nuclear Weapons (petition)

"Together with China we'll continue to strive for a reasonable approach and not an emotional one like when children in a kindergarten start fighting and no one can stop them."
-- Sergei Lavrov, Foreign Minister of Russia. Lavrov was referring to a proposal supported by Russia and China that would involve North Korea freezing its nuclear and missile programs in exchange for a halt to joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises.

DEAR SENATOR TILLIS,

STRANGELY, YOU NEVER GIVE ME YOUR OPINION ON S. 3169.

GIVEN THE WASTEFUL OVERKILL WE HAVE, WE SHOULD ABIDE BY THE TREATY REGARDLESS. LET RUSSIA THROW ITS MONEY DOWN A RATHOLE IF IT WANTS.

“Vladimir Putin’s gangster regime is armed to the” TREATY LIMITS, JUST LIKE OUR “gangster regime”.

THAT’S JUST SILLY. CHINA HAS NO INTENTION OF MATCHING RUSSIA OR THE US’ NUCLEAR ARSENAL.
