Citizen Weapons Inspections

An exciting new global initiative has developed in the wake of the highly publicized United Nations weapons inspections of Iraqi sites, and the 1996 decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the illegality of nuclear weapons.

Citing international law affirmed by the ICJ that the threat or use of nuclear weapons is generally illegal and that there is an obligation to negotiate for their elimination, teams of citizens have been attempting to inspect nuclear weapons facilities in order to ascertain whether illegal activities are continuing. This includes the deployment of nuclear weapons and activities which aim to maintain nuclear weapons indefinitely.

Below is a sample list of such inspections;

Kleine Brogel

Volkel Air Force Base

NATO Headquarters

Applied Physics Lab

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base
