EarthAction and 2020 Action fully support and have signed the Global Zero petition to President Obama calling for zero nuclear weapons. We hope, wherever you live, you will sign it too and will forward it to your friends and contacts.
From Global Zero:
What do Pearl Jam and the United Nations have in common? The same thing that REM and Richard Branson do: they all love this inspiring video at the heart of our new campaign calling on President Obama to set the world’s course to zero.
This month, we rolled out our biggest and most important campaign to date: a massive global grassroots appeal to President Obama to negotiate deep cuts in U.S.-Russian Cold War arsenals and bring world leaders together to set the world’s course to zero. And with a little help from Michael Douglas -- a passionate supporter of the Global Zero movement -- we released an amazing 2-minute video calling on the public to rise up and demand zero.
More than 50,000 people have already watched the video. We know that the more people who see it, the more likely it is to get in front of President Obama - so this week let’s double that number. Will you please take 2 minutes to watch it and share with friends and family?
We’ve already made a big splash in the media, thanks to a little help from Valerie Plame Wilson and Queen Noor, but we need your help if we’re going to reach the White House.
Watch it. Share it. Stand up and demand zero. Together, we’ll make history.
Derek, Lauren, John-Michael, Marion, Bonk and the rest of the Global Zero team
