How to get rid of the bomb in 5 steps
Practical proposals for Members of Parliament to make the Netherlands a nuclear weapon free country
On December 20th 2012 the Dutch parliament adopted a motion by Omtzigt (No 33400-V, No 100), in which the government is asked to make the elimination of tactical nuclear weapons from Europe a hard policy target. IKV Pax Christi is very pleased that a majority voted in favour of this motion and hopes that the Government will energetically start working on making concrete steps to achieve nuclear disarmament. One of these days those bombs will have to be removed, so why not in this Cabinet period?
In this booklet we want to offer some suggestions for concrete steps on nuclear disarmament. We hope you will use these suggestions in a future debate on the implementation of the motion Omtzigt.
IKV Pax Christi tries to offer advice on realistic and practical steps leading to disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation, removal of U.S. nuclear weapons from Europe and the Netherlands being one of our priorities.
