NO WAR, NO NUKES!
End the War in Iraq: Bring Our Troops Home Now
Fund Essential Programs at Home, Not War Abroad
Abolish All Nuclear Weapons Worldwide
============================================

Weapons of Mass Destruction Found in Iraq: 0
Nuclear Weapons Stockpiled by the U.S.: 10,350
Cost of the War in Iraq: Tens of Thousands of Lives and Billions of
Dollars

In May, world leaders, mayors and people from around the world will
converge on the United Nations to decide the fate of the endangered
Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Signed by 189 nations including the
U.S., the NPT prohibits non-nuclear states from acquiring or producing
nuclear weapons, and requires nations that have nuclear weapons to
negotiate their elimination. Now, the Bush administration is on the verge of
undermining the NPT and generating a dangerous new nuclear arms race.

The Bush administration's posture toward nuclear proliferation has been
utterly hypocritical. It threatens war against nations such as Iran and
North Korea if they violate the NPT, while flouting the treaty itself.
The U.S. is legally obligated under the NPT to eliminate its nuclear
weapons, but in fact, the Bush administration is upgrading U.S. nuclear
weapons systems and infrastructure, seeking to build a new generation of
"battle-ready" nukes, and has even threatened first use of nuclear
weapons. These terrifying moves are part of the larger Bush agenda of
aggressive empire-building, the same drive for U.S. military and economic
domination that led to the disastrous Iraq war.

Nuclear weapons -- or rather, the fiction that Saddam Hussein was
developing them -- were a key pretext for the Bush administration's invasion
of Iraq. The whole world now recognizes this lie as an attempt to
justify a war to control access to Iraq's oil and enhance U.S. power in the
Middle East.

The war in Iraq rages on with mounting casualties and a country in
ruins, while here in the U.S., the cost of war translates into drastic cuts
in vital services in our communities, hitting people of color, the
poor, and working people the hardest.

The world has seen many horrific conflicts since the first and only use
of nuclear weapons in war 60 years ago when the U.S. bombed Hiroshima
and Nagasaki. Nevertheless, nuclear weapons have not been exploded in
war again. Now the Bush Administration is threatening to breach that
"firewall" by including nuclear weapons in its war-fighting plans.  

On Sunday, May 1st, the day before the NPT Conference opens, United for
Peace and Justice and Abolition Now! are organizing a massive
demonstration in the streets of New York City. We will call for our troops to
come home from Iraq and for complete nuclear disarmament. Join us!
