POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT REAGAN DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: In your recent speech to the Japanese Parliament you said: "Nuclear war can never be won, and must never be fought." At the U.N. you said the same. If you really mean this, you must of course join in the pledge not to be first to use nuclear weapons. Otherwise, your words will mean nothing, and the other side in any military crisis will feel they have to beat you to the nuclear punch. China and the USSR have already pledged at the U.N. that they would never be first to use nuclear weapons. Is our government to remain less sane than theirs? The issue is not mutual trust, but mutual sanity. No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use is the precondition of anyone's survival, and of any further negotiations. We in California have launched a campaign to place upon the ballot in 1984 an Initiative that will give the people a chance to vote on the policy of No-First-Use. No-First-Use. No-First-Use. No-First-Use. No-First-Use. We cannot wait until "the day after" to speak out. Mr. President, we are entitled to know where you now stand. Is your policy No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use of Nuclear Weapons, or is it still the suicidal option of First-Use First-Use First-Use and the kind of war you now admit can never be won and must never be fought? You cannot have it both ways. No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use No-First-Use is the only way to a human future.
