June 25th: Nuclear Abolition Day

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is coordinating ‘Nuclear Abolition Day’ to mobilize for a treaty to outlaw and eliminate all nuclear weapons. See how you can get involved by going to nuclearabolition.org.

At last year’s Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference, the five original nuclear weapon states – the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, and China – all agreed to take steps towards the elimination of nuclear weapons.

But there’s a long, long way left to go before these and other countries live up to their abolition obligations.

On June 29 and 30, the five leaders will meet again in Paris to discuss issues of non-proliferation. Let them know people are paying attention!
