With the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock set at 100 seconds to midnight, and the world’s nuclear powers upgrading their nuclear arsenals and dangerously engaging in provocative military “exercises”, activists and advocates around the world are working to prevent nuclear war and build a nuclear weapons free world.
In the runup to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference scheduled for this August at the United Nations, the international Peace & Planet Network, a project of Abolition 2000, seeks to hold the nuclear weapons states accountable to their NPT Article VI commitment to engage in good faith negotiations for the complete elimination of their nuclear arsenals. We are beginning with a series of webinars to share information and analysis and to coordinate efforts.
