Geneva: April 28 New York: May 11
On January 25, the hands of the Doomsday Clock were moved to 2 Minutes to Midnight due to the increased risk of nuclear conflicts. Now is the time to take action for nuclear abolition! Help us reverse the hands of the Doomsday Clock and abolish nuclear weapons.
Join us in Geneva and/or New York for the annual campaigners meetings of Abolition 2000, the global civil society network to eliminate nuclear weapons.
Nuclear abolition activists from around the world will meet to share campaign reports, discuss nuclear disarmament strategy, explore opportunities for action, build cooperation and plan further campaigns.
This year, we will hold an AGM in Geneva on April 28 followed by an International Campaign and Strategy Meeting in New York on May 11. Join us for either or both events
AGM: Geneva. April 28
States Parties to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) will be meeting in Geneva from April 23 – May 4 for the 2nd Preparatory Conference for the 2020 NPT Review. The Abolition 2000 AGM will be held in the weekend in-between the two weeks of NPT deliberations.
Abolition 2000 was established at the 1995 NPT Review and Extension Conference, with a focus on the full implementation of Article VI of the NPT, the obligation to achieve complete nuclear disarmament. We have been active at all the NPT review conferences and preparatory meetings since then.
