Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, has signed the Europe for Peace Declaration. Professor Chomsky has already been supporting the "No to the Bases" initiative taking place in the Czech Republic with similar aims on a national level.
Below is the statement of professor Chomsky that accompanied his signature:
"Over half a century ago, Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein issued a plea to the people of the world to face the fact that we have a choice that is "stark and dreadful and inescapable: Shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war?"
The threats are increasing in severity. Europe is uniquely well-placed to undertake the historic mission of saving the human race from self-destruction."
