Dirty Dozen: corporate partners in mass destruction

In 2001 and 2007, Reaching Critical Will teamed up with the Arms Trade Resource Center of the World Policy Institute and the Stop the Merchants of Death Network of the War Resisters League to research and generate materials exposing the complicity of corporations contributing to the nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear weapon proliferation, and the associated social, cultural, and environmental harm.

We researched and produced profiles of thirteen (a baker's dozen) corporations that are deeply involved in researching, developing, and manufacturing nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Our goal was to uncover and stigmatize the profit these corporations make while sustaining nuclear weapons and nuclear power at a time in history when human dialogue and ingenuity could make both obsolete. We want to provide basic information about these corporations that can serve as a foundation and impetus for informed action that challenges these corporations to revoke their membership in the nuclear club.
