PEOPLE FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT NSW

HUMAN SURVIVAL PROJECT

 

SANCTIONS? NO USE AT ALL!

THREATS? MAKE KIM JONG UN WORK FASTER

MILITARY ACTION? MILLIONS WILL DIE.

DIALOGUE? MIGHT BE WORTH A TRY.

(AND ANOTHER TRY AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER...)

 

Kim Jong Un has conducted his 6th nuclear test. Whether it really was a hydrogen bomb is uncertain, but it seems likely that the blast was 4-6 times the size of the last one. If it wasn't an actual hydrogen bomb its likely to have been 'gas boosted', which is a kind of way station to a hydrogen bomb. There doesn't seem to be, and most likely isn't, any way to stop him. Hyperventilating, sanctions, threats of military action, aren't working. Military action will kill millions, and lead to the very thing we are trying to prevent – the actual use of nuclear weapons.

For ten days starting August 21, 2017, U.S. and South Korean forces will carry out the Ulchi Freedom Guardian war drills involving tens of thousands of soldiers from both militaries simulating an invasion of North Korea. Proponents say they are needed to deter aggression from Pyongyang, whereas North Korea views these rehearsals for war as highly threatening and justification for its nuclear and missile program. These war drills have been going on since 1953 when the Korean War was halted with a ceasefire, but not a peace treaty.

'The increasing tensions and threat of military conflict over North Korea's nuclear and missile capabilities makes a diplomatic solution of vital importance and highest priority,' according to Alyn Ware, Global Coordinator for Parliamentarians for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament (PNND).

'The risk of war, and even the use of nuclear weapons by miscalculation or accident, is increasing. It won't be quelled by threats and counter threats from North Korea, USA, Japan, or South Korea.'

'Legislators from the United States, Japan, South Korea and around the world recognise this threat and are responding with various calls for diplomacy and proposals for diplomatic solutions.'
 

64 members of US Congress call for diplomacy

Press release: June 1, 2017

An international prohibition on the financing of nuclear weapons could help reverse the nuclear arms race and be a powerful tool in delegitimizing nuclear weapons, according to nuclear disarmament campaigners participating in  UN negotiations on a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons.
