For the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to collapse would be tragic. But for it to continue when everyone knows it is a lie is a moral and mortal affront to the people of the world, writes TF board member Robin Lloyd, who attended meetings this month of the 10th Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference at the United Nations.
The accelerated drive to militarization and war by the United States and its allies that is dramatically unfolding with the crisis in Ukraine might very easily escalate to the point that it could threaten global humanity.
