The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty: A Commitment to the Future
The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, long in coming, holds the seeds
of real. increased security for the women of the world, their children and their
extended families. As the nations of the world gather to sign the CTB.
Women for Meaningful Summits congratulate all the diplomats who have
spent so many long years of their lives working for this day.
We also call upon these same nations to act in accordance with the
wishes of` their peoples and never again test nor further develop Nuclear
weapons. Follow through and put this treaty into force!
The creativity and resources of our peoples must now be redirected to
the reducrion of` nuclear stockpiles, the clean-up of the the environment. the
nonviolent resolution of problems, and the improvement of the lives of
families around the world. It is through these actions that the seeds of
security we sow today can be nurtured and grown into the healthy peaceful
communities of` tomorrow.
