Ed Markey, Congressional ally for anti-nuclear groups for 42+ years

Massachusetts Senator, Democrat Ed Markey, is a long-time ally of the anti-nuclear movement. On May 22 he received an award from the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability. During remarks at the event, he reminded a packed audience just how dire the nuclear peril has become under President Trump.

“President Trump, who has threatened other countries with ‘fire and fury,’ wants new, more usable nuclear weapons,” said Markey. “He wants so-called low-yield, submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Low-yield nuclear weapons. That’s like an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp or Salt Lake City nightlife. It doesn’t exist. Low-yield nuclear weapons is a contradiction in terms. What are they talking about?”
