German Chapter celebrates entry into force of the TPNW
Report by Ms. Evelyn Kamissek, the City of Hannover, Germany
To mark the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 22 January, 2021, more than 50 German member cities raised the Mayors for Peace flag as a sign of their support and informed the public with press releases.
The City of Trier drew attention to the nuclear weapons ban with a particularly creative action: the dance video "Hope is a Decision" celebrated the day of entry into force as a day of joy. You can watch the video here:
Already on the day before the treaty came into force, the IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) student group Hannover and ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) in cooperation with the state capital Hannover offered a digital event on the topic of “the explosive for the bomb - nuclear power as a precursor technology for nuclear weapons.”
Here you will find an overview of the activities of the member cities united by the wish that the TPNW will achieve visible nuclear disarmament progress this year.Website of Mayors for Peace Germany (in German)
