In a Statement by NATO is the following : “it commits to the goal of creating the conditions for a world without nuclear weapons – but reconfirms that, as long as there are nuclear weapons in the world, NATO will remain a nuclear Alliance.”

 

NATO countries  have a chance to create the conditions for a world without nuclear weapons by  reversing their previous positons taken on May 15 August, 2016  and August 25  2016

 Presentation behalf of the Peace caucus. 

September 1996

Circulated at Habitat II in Istanbul 

 

"To address the urgency" none of the actions required nor all of them combined- is expensive in the context of...military expenditures. A few would require little or not additional financial resources in that they involve changes in lifestyles, social norms or government policies that can be largely brought about and sustained through greater citizen action and political leadership (Programme of action of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development, 1994)

 

REDUCTION OF THE MILITARY BUDGET

Cities will be habitable when there is the international political will to make fundamental global change to provide for essential needs. Both humans and ecosystems have basic identifiable needs for survival and quality of life and function.

 

Concerned that  currently (1996) the Global Community spends $860 billion on the military budget at a time when the right to housing, the right to food, the right to health care, the right to equality of all , the right to education, the right to safe drinking water, and the right to a safe environment have not been fulfilled.

 

Aware that in 1976 at Habitat 1, member states of the United Nations affirmed the following in relation to the military budget:

 

"The waste and misuse of resources in war and armaments should be prevented. All countries should make a firm commitment to promote general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control, in particular in the field of nuclear disarmament. Part of the resources thus released should be utilized so as to achieve a better quality of life for humanity and particularly the peoples of developing countries" (II, 12 Habitat 1).
