Update #2 ·

Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman and other artists join the call to eliminate nuclear weapons

President Obama will meet with President Putin on the side of the June 17-18 G-8 Summit in Northern Ireland, with nuclear weapons on the agenda. In the lead-up to this critical decision point, an eminent group of artists – including Alec Baldwin, John Cusack, Matt Damon, Robert De Niro, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Whoopi Goldberg, Zoe Kravitz, Martin Sheen, Christoph Waltz and Naomi Watts – issued a stirring call for a world without nuclear weapons in a powerful new video released by Global Zero.

The video is part of an international campaign urging President Obama to set the world’s course to zero nuclear weapons by negotiating further cuts in the massive U.S.-Russian Cold War stockpiles and bringing other leading nuclear powers into international nuclear arms negotiations for the first time in history.
