“The failure of the United States to uphold important commitments and respect the law makes the world a more dangerous place. President Obama has said that ridding the world of these devastating weapons is a fundamental moral issue of our time. It is time for the United States to show true leadership by keeping the promise set forth in the Non-Proliferation Treaty.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

“This suit is long overdue. The U.S. has been in continuous violation of its Article VI obligations under the NPT since ratification nearly 45 years ago.”

Daniel Ellsberg, Former U.S. Military Analyst

“Nuclear weapons are a clear reflection of fear and paranoia and project a false sense of security. I stand with the Marshall Islands in their pursuit of negotiations for Nuclear Zero, the only safe number of nuclear weapons on the planet.”

Martin Sheen, Actor and Social Justice Activist

“The Marshall Islands demonstrate immense courage taking the mighty U.S.
and the other nuclear-armed nations to the International Court of Justice.
 We pray their efforts will open the hearts of the international community
to finally move toward rapid, total nuclear disarmament.” 

Helen Caldicott, Australian Physician, author and anti-nuclear advocate

“I am a great believer that individuals can make a difference. 
By filing these lawsuits, the Marshall Islanders show us
that we have both the right and the power to
hold governments accountable for their actions.”

Bianca Jagger, Social and human rights activist 

“The demand of the Marshall Islands should be echoed by all
nations and peoples who will perish if the strategic nuclear arsenals
of the nuclear weapon states are detonated in conflict.”

Steven Starr, Physicians for Social Responsibility 

“The new legal challenge to nuclear-armed nations from the Marshall Islands
is hugely inspiring. The Nuclear Zero campaign is another definitive step
in the direction of nuclear abolition.”

Kathleen Sullivan, Program Director, Hibakusha Stories

“Together with our support for your legal proceedings and our recognition of the intense suffering from which this was born, I would like to say that we also feel a strong and long lasting bond with the people of the Marshall Islands. The experience of your country and your people is at the very heart of our movement.”

Kate Hudson, General Secretary, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

“The Marshall Islands seeks no compensation through these lawsuits. They acted out of noble intentions. All Marshall Islanders should be proud that their country stands on the side of reason, justice and sanity. In these lawsuits, the Marshall Islands has taken a stand for all humanity. May the Marshalls prevail for the sake of us all and for the future of humanity and the planet.”

Setsuko Thurlow, Survivor of the U.S. atomic bombing in Hiroshima

“The Nuclear Zero lawsuits respond humanely to the pain of Marshall Islanders. The lawsuits are combating nuclearism, a still dangerous spiritual disease, and military stance. They demonstrate determination to take action on behalf of continuing life, rather than giving up on our planet.” 

Robert J. Lifton, American Psychiatrist and Author

“Current nuclear expenditures and policies are genocidal, suicidal, and insane. The use of nuclear weapons, knowing that large numbers of civilians will be killed, is a crime against humanity for which responsible leaders would be held accountable, civilly and criminally, in a national or international criminal court.”

Ben Ferencz, Prosecutor of Nazi War Crimes

“The poisoned and fractured Marshall Islands shout a “broken alleluia” to the planet. This nation of 68,000 people is a victim of “nuclearism”, a terminal pathology which endangers life on earth. Thanks to the scholars, laureates, and truth seekers who support this venture!”

Blase Bonpane, Director of the Offices of America

“We stand with the people of the Marshall Islands in their fight to rid the world of nuclear weapons. Having seen their land, sea and people poisoned by radiation, they're now taking to task the nine nuclear-armed nations for failing to eliminate this danger which threatens humanity at large. Greenpeace salutes their struggle and joins them in declaring that zero is the only safe number of nuclear weapons on the planet.”

Kumi Naidoo, Executive Director, Greenpeace International  

“The sense of urgency for disarmament is greater than ever.
In this David vs. Goliath action, this tiny island nation has
found the voice to speak on behalf of the world
and the other nations signatory to the Treaty.”

Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate  

“The announcement of this legal action was welcomed with applause and loud cheering in New York at the UN. It is inspiring that this small island nation whose people bore the terrible catastrophic consequences of US nuclear testing in the Pacific, with genetic damage, cancer, leukemia and awful mutations caused by the radioactive fallout, has courageously challenged the unconscionable policies of nuclear weapons.” 

Alice Slater, Member of Coordinating Committee, Abolition 2000
