"So that the people from future generations will not have to experience hell on earth, we want to realize a world free of nuclear weapons while we are still alive." We are organizing events all over the US, with a Hibakusha - survivor of the Hiroshima bombing, to spread the message of nuclear abolition! Momentum is on our side with the power of over 8 Million people who have already joined and the 2017 Noble Peace Prize behind us, but we need your help to get to as many places as possible!!
Human beings have prohibited the use, development, production, and possession of biological and chemical weapons by treaties and protocols. Why do we hesitate to prohibit nuclear weapons, which are far more destructive than these weapons?
Yes, this might seems like a lofty or even idealistic goal. However, we have already collected over 8,000,000 signatures AND helped pass a new treaty abolishing nuclear weapons, the Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) which won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize! As of right now we only need 31 more countries to ratify the treaty to become international law.
Once the TPNW is ratified we can begin the process of true abolition. In order for this to happen, we need to change the narrative in the US and NATO states to see the true humanitarian impact of these devastating weapons. The argument of deterrence is foolhardy and unrealistic - if it worked we would still only have 5 countries with these weapons, not 9! When looking at the humanitarian impact these weapons have there is no denying our inability to respond to a nuclear attack.
