Kernwapens niet langer op scherp

“Kernwapens niet langer op scherp”,aldus een oproep van 32 Nobelprijswinnaars, parlementsleden, NGO’s en Europees Parlement ter voorbereiding van Toetsingsconferentie nucleair Non-Proliferatieverdrag New York mei 2005

Brussel – Melbourne – Londen – New  York – Hiroshima,  5 April 2005 –  Tweeëndertig Nobel prijswinnaars en 237 NGO’s en parlementsleden uit alle windstreken roepen op om kernwapens niet langer op scherp te houden. Dit als noodzakelijke maatregel om het risico van een accidentele kernoorlog te voorkomen. De oproep welke vandaag wordt vrijgegeven krijgt reeds de ruggesteun door een resolutie in het Europees Parlement en de Australische
Senaat. Bij de ondertekenaars o.a. de Dalai Lama, Jose Ramos Horta, Joseph Rotblat, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Oscar Arrias Sanchez en Betty Williams.
Ook een aantal organisaties welke de nobelprijs wonnen horen bij de ondertekenaars, w.o. het International Peace Bureau en IPPNW, de Artsen voor Vrede. In België werd de oproep medeondertekend door parlementsleden Eloi Glorieux (Groen!) en Patrik Vankrunkelsven (VLD), het Forum voor Vredesactie en Voor Moeder Aarde vzw, lid van Friends of the Earth
International.

Ondanks belangrijke reducties in het totaal aantal kernwapens van de VS en Rusland blijven duizenden kernwapens op scherp staan. In het verleden werden reeds verscheidene keren angstaanjagende kernrampen voorkomen, waarbij de toekomst van de beschaving en alle levende wezens afhing van de juiste beslissingen door militair personeel welk onder enorme druk moet werken in dergelijke situaties. “We moeten dringend stoppen met het spelen
van Russische en Amerikaanse roulette” aldus John Hallam, van Friends of the Earth Sydney, een van de initiatiefnemers van deze oproep.

Het dealerteren van kernwapens werd reeds verscheidene malen gevraagd door het Europees Parlement, de Algemene Vergadering van de VN. Het was ook een belangrijke aanbeveling van de Canberra Commissie in 1996, of onlangs nog van de Atlanta Consultation, welke eind januari van dit jaar nog werd voorgezeten door voormalig President Carter.

Het dealerteren van kernwapens wordt als een belangrijke stap gezien naar de volledige afschaffing van kernwapens wereldwijd, zoals  voorzien in Artikel VI van het Non-Proliferatie Verdrag. Op 10 maart kwam de goedkeuring van het Europees Parlement van een resolutie welk de kernmachten oproept tot volledige nucleaire ontwapening. Het Europees
Parlement gaf hier ook steun voor de noodcampagne van de burgemeesters van Hiroshima en Nagasaki, waarbij een stappenplan wordt voorgesteld voor de volledige afschaffing van alle kernwapens tegen 2020.

Deze oproep werd gelijktijdig verspreid in Melbourne, Geneva, Hiroshima, San Francisco, New York, Londen en Brussel op  5 april 2005.

STATEMENT OF ENDORSEMENT

The Distinguished individuals and organisations below, make the following appeal concerning nuclear weapons, and the  danger posed by the maintainance of thousands of nuclear warheads and delivery systems on launch-on-warning status. We call on the governments of the United States, Russia,  China, France, and the UK, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea, to support and implement steps to lower the operational status of nuclear weapon systems in order  to  reduce the risk of nuclear catastrophe and as part of thier
obligations, affirmed by  the International Court of Justice, to achieve the elimination of nuclear weapons under strict and effective international control.

We note that:

1) To this day, thousands of nuclear weapons in the US and Russia are on Launch-on-warning status, and that the megattonage involved remains more than enough to destroy civilisation and perhaps the human race.
2) That the Indian subcontinent is increasingly on a ‘hairtrigger’ status.
3) That there have been numerous incidents in which a nuclear exchange involving thousands of warheads could have taken place, and in which the fate of the earth has depended on the correct judgement of a single individual.
4) That the US, Russia, China, France, and the UK  have failed so far to make further progress to achieve the total and unequivocal elimination of their nuclear arsenals, as called for under international law.
5) That, in addition to the failure of the ‘officlal’ nuclear weapons powers to fulfil their treaty obligations,  India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea also posess nuclear weapons, and that
the risk of their use is very real.
6) That a number of calls have been made by the UN General Assembly and by the European Parliament to lower the operational status of nuclear weapons.


Accordingly we call on the governments of the United States, Russia, China, France and the UK, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea,  to:
a) Take immediate steps to lower the operational status of nuclear weapons, and to revise nuclear doctrines, policies and postures to reflect such lowered operational status.
b) To implement in good faith their obligations under international law , to accomplish the total and unequivocal elimination of their nuclear arsenals.
c) To implement the steps toward nuclear disarmament outlined in the ’13 steps’ of the final declaration of the Year 2000 NPT Review Conference.
d) We call on non- nuclear nations to press for nuclear disarmament in every available international forum especially including the United Nations General Assembly First Committee and the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.
e) We call on legislators worldwide to pass resolutions in national and other parliaments pressing for the lowering of the operational status of nuclear weapons and for nuclear disarmament as mandated by international law.
