Please support our petition asking for a nuclear weapons convention!
Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation
In August 1945, atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought unspeakable tragedy to both cities. Many survivors still suffer the aftereffects, and yet nuclear weapons continue to threaten the very survival of human life on this planet.
To avoid any repetition of the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, people around the world must work hand in hand to build a culturally rich, environmentally sustainable, safe and peaceful nuclear-weapon-free world.
<Mayors for Peace seeks the total abolition of nuclear weapons by 2020.>
Mayors for Peace was founded by the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1982. As of March 1, 2012, we have 5,136 member cities in 153 countries and regions. Through intercity solidarity, we pursue a peaceful world without nuclear weapons.
One of our concrete actions is the 2020 Vision Campaign (an Emergency Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons), which seeks the total elimination of nuclear weapons by 2020. Our original CANT (Cities Are Not Targets) petition called for nuclear-armed states to stop targeting cities with nuclear weapons. Between 2007 and May 2010, with the help of thousands of peace-loving groups and individuals, we collected more than a million signatures, which we delivered to the UN Headquarters in New York. Now, we are promoting a new petition demanding the immediate commencement of negotiations for a nuclear weapons convention (NWC).
A GLOBAL MOVEMENT HAS BEGUN!
Please support this petition.
