As all nuclear armed countries are planning to upgrade their nuclear weapons systems at a cost of many billions of dollars, at the same time the majority of countries in the world are calling for negotiations in 2017 on a new treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons. Now is a great time to join the Abolition 2000 Annual General Meeting. read more

Abolition 2000

The Cold War ended more than two decades ago, but there are still 16,000 nuclear weapons on the planet. Most of them belong to the United States and Russia. The United Kingdom, China, France, India, Pakistan, Israel, and now, North Korea, collectively have fewer than 1000.
