Over the next decade, the US government will spend $600 billion on nuclear weapons. That’s while the government cuts budgets for teachers, schools suffer from overcrowding, and there’s less money for health care, job creation and social services.

Watts’ support for nuclear disarmament sparked after playing Plame Wilson in the 2010 film, Fair Game. Plame Wilson was an undercover CIA operative working to ensure that Iran and Iraq did not acquire nuclear weapons. The government blew her cover as payback for an op-ed article her husband wrote criticizing the White House.
