Legislators and disarmament experts from around the world meeting at the Parliamentarians for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament (PNND) Assembly in Washington, D.C. last week called on the leaders of the nuclear-weapon States, and other States participating in the forthcoming Nuclear Security Summit to commence a high level process to achieve the global abolition of nuclear weapons.
Nuclear abolition is moving from vision, to action. You can help.
A UN High Level Meeting on Nuclear Disarmament at the United Nations last September made every country pay attention to this vital issue for humanity. The recent conference in Nayarit on the humanitarian consequences of nucelar abolition was a stark reminder that we must abolish these weapons, before they abolish us. Austria will hold another conference on the humanitarian consequences later this year.
Let’s keep the nuclear abolition ball rolling.
Join us for networking and campaign planning at the annual meeting of Abolition 2000.
The Abolition 2000 Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, May 4, 9 AM to 6 PM, at 320 Studios, 320 W. 37th St. 14th floor, between 8th and 9th Avenues in New York City. All are welcome to attend. Please let us know you are coming.
U.S. legislators from both sides of the aisle, parliamentarians from around the world (members of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament) – representatives of the ATOM Project, congressional aides and over 200 others gathered in the historic Russell Senate Building on Feb. 27, the eve of Nuclear Remembrance Day, for an evening to highlight the financial and humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, encourage anti-nuclear weapons dialogue and build parliamentary engagement in practical measures to achieve a nuclear-weapons free world.
