Sign the petition. Observe a minute of silence
August 29 is the International Day Against Nuclear Tests. It was established by the United Nations to mark the anniversary of the day in 1991 that Kazakhstan closed down the Soviet nuclear test site on their territory.
The ATOM Project is calling for an international moment of silence on the day in memory of all victims of nuclear weapons testing. The project was launched by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev at an international parliamentary conference in Astana organised by Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament on August 29, 2012. It aims to build global popular support for a permanent end to nuclear weapons testing and for the abolition of nuclear weapons, including through a global petition.
