Join 460 Groups Asking for Nuke Weapons Off Alert for Y2K


If you haven't signed it and agree that its risky to have 5,600 nuke
warheads on hairtrigger alert over Y2K, do please sign, and please also fax
presidents Yeltsin and Clinton and defence secy Cohen.

You could also ask your members to send to US Defence Secy Cohen Clinton,
and Yeltsin, the sample letters posted yesterday and today (Clintons fax
number +1-202-456-2461, Cohen 1-703-695-1149,Yeltsin +7-095-205-4330).

Dear Non-Governmental Organisation, Parliamentarian or Religious group,

The European Parliament passed a resolution on Nov 18th, calling on the US
and Russia to take 5,600 nuclear weapons off hairtrigger alert before
December 31, for the Y2K 'Rollover'.

Mounting concern is being expressed over the possibility of accidental
nuclear war due to Y2K related computer failures in the vast interconnected
computer complexes that control nuclear weapons.

De-alerting has also been incorporated in two recent resolutions passed by
the United Nations General Assembly and two similar ones passed last year,
as well as two resolutions passed recently by the Australian senate. It has
been reccommended by the Canberra Commission of 1996 and by the Tokyo

The letter below, which I hope you will sign, has already been signed by 22
Australian MPs, 10members of the European Parliament, 9 NZ parliamentarians
and 4 Canadian parliamentarians as well as three congresspeople.
Altogether it has been signed by over 460 NGOs, including Friends of the
Earth International, (and FOE-UK), Greenpeace International, the British
American Security Information Council and the Centre for Defence
Information in Washington.

I hope you can sign it.

John Hallam, Letter Coordinator.

Dear Presidents Yeltsin and Clinton, Defence Ministers and Defence
Secretaries, Heads of State and UN Missions,

The organisations above, representing millions of people worldwide, are
writing to convey their extreme concern  over the possibility that Year
2000 (Y2K)-related computer failures in nuclear weapons systems may lead to
an unacceptable risk of  nuclear war by accident or miscalculation.

In the current political situation this is most especially the case.
According to Alexandr Arbatov, of the Defence Committee of the Russian
State Duma, US-Russian relations are at 'the worst, most acute,  most
dangerous juncture since the US-Soviet Berlin and Cuban missile crises.'

The danger   during the Y2K rollover lies primarily in the possibility that
spurious data may induce commanders, even at the highest levels, to
mistakenly authorise the launches of nuclear weapons.

Events similar to this have already occurred. For example:

In the US in 1980,  a malfunctioning computer chip sent spurious alert

In 1983 in Russia, satellites mistook glare off the tops of clouds for a US
missile launch, (and disaster was averted by the refusal of the local
commander to believe the warnings were real);

In 1995,  a Norwegian research rocket prompted a full-scale Russian alert.

If Y2K breakdowns produce inaccurate early warning data, or if
communications and command channels are compromised, the combination of
hair-trigger force postures and Y2K failures could be disastrous. There
should therefore be a 'safety first ' approach  to Y2K and nuclear

Because none of the nuclear weapons states can guarantee that their
nuclear- related computer systems are Y2K compliant, the only responsible
solution is for them all to  stand down nuclear operations. This approach
should include taking nuclear weapons off alert status and decoupling
nuclear warheads from delivery vehicles.

The stakes involved in any nuclear exchange between Russia and the US are
such that they dwarf any other considerations. The future of life itself on
earth could be in doubt.

In  light of this, we strongly urge that you remove all strategic and
tactical nuclear weapons from 'hair trigger' alert, and place them in a
status in which at least hours and preferably days would be required to
launch them.

The Canberra Commission in August 1996, noted that terminating nuclear
alert status would:
--Reduce dramatically the chances of accidental or unauthorised  nuclear
missile launch.
--Help set the stage for intensified cooperation on a more far- reaching
disarmament agenda
--Have a very positive influence on the political climate between nuclear
weapon states.

This last is especially relevant in the current tension between Russia and
NATO, which has prompted Russia to withdraw from cooperation with the US on
Y2K problems.

According to the Canberra Commission,
"Taking nuclear forces off alert could be verified by national technical
means and nuclear weapon state inspection arrangements. in the first
instance, reduction in alert status could be adopted by the nuclear weapon
states unilaterally"

If both sides are verifiably de-alerted, it will not be possible for either
to launch a disarming first strike.

The immediate stakes are so high, and the potential for global catastrophe
so clear, that mutually verified de-alerting in the face of the Y2K
computer problem must take precedence over all other considerations of
politics and national security.
