Vermont Legislature Calls for Nuclear Abolition


On April 28, the Vermont House of Representatives approved a resolution calling on the President to negotiate a treaty that is mutual, verifiable and results in the elimination of all nuclear weapons. Earlier, the Vermont Senate voted unanimously for the same resolution. The vote followed intense campaigning by the Vermont Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, which in August 1998 organized the 93 mile long Vermont Walk to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. The coalition also organized town meetings throughout Vermont resulting in 33 towns adopting  resolutions calling on the US government to enter into negotiations for an abolition treaty.
