Abolition 2000 & The Global Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons & The Basel Peace Office – 2018-08-05 01:25:50
Remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki;
Abolish Nuclear Arms
Why This Is Important
Global Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons
(August 4, 2018) — The risk of a nuclear war by accident, miscalculation or intent has risen due to unstable leaders and unresolved tensions. According to the ‘Doomsday Clock’ the world is just ‘2 Minutes to Midnight’, the closest we have been to nuclear war since the height of the Cold War.
In 2017 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution to hold a High Level Conference (like a Summit) in 2018 for nuclear disarmament. The conference would increase political, media and public pressure to prohibit and prevent any use of nuclear weapons, and to undertake measures to reduce and eliminate nuclear weapons globally.
However, manipulation and pressure by the nuclear-armed States might prevent this conference from proceeding. You can help keep the UN on track for nuclear abolition.
ACTION: Add your name and share this petition. UNFOLD ZERO will forward this to Foreign Ministers, UN ambassadors and the President of the UN General Assembly before the UN makes its decision on the High Level Conference in October 2018.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days —
Events around the World
Basel Peace Office
August 6 and 9 are the 73rd anniversaries of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We encourage you to join an event or take action for nuclear abolition on these days.
Join an event or list your event
Over 200 events around the world are listed on the Abolition 2000 calendar of events for Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days.
* Check if there is an event near you.
* If you are holding an event that is not listed, please let us know and we can add it.
Support the UN High-Level Conference
The United Nations was supposed to hold a High-Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament in May 2018. However, the conference was postponed. And now, pro-nuclear forces are trying to scuttle it completely.
The High-Level Conference could build more signatures for the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, as well as advancing initiatives to prevent the use of nuclear weapons and move the nuclear-armed States to nuclear disarmament.
* Sign the Avaaz petition United Nations: Step up for nuclear abolition
“The United Nations (UN) needs to take stronger action to prevent the use of nuclear weapons and to achieve a nuclear-weapons-free world. We call on governments to suport the UN High Level Conference (Summit) on Nuclear Disarmament. Don’t let it be cancelled under pressure from pro-nuclear forces.”
* Send a letter to your government (Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, UN Ambassador).
* H.E. Mrs. Nikki R. Haley — USUNPolFax@state.gov
* H.E. Robert Wood — WoodRA3@state.gov

Nuclear Remembrance and Action Week, August 6-9, 2018
Take action for nuclear abolition
on the 73rd anniversaries of the
nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
1. Join a local Hiroshima or Nagasaki Day event
There are events happening around the world. Visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki Day events to see if there is an event near you.
2. Support the UN High-Level Conference
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) decided to hold a High-Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament in 2018 to advance effective measures for nuclear disarmament and pave the way for the elimination of nuclear weapons through a global treaty. However, the pro-nuclear states prevented the conference from being held this year. (See Nuclear Weapon States’ Long Arm Seen Behind Deferral of Landmark UN Conference)
In October the UN will decide whether to re-schedule the event for next year, or drop it altogether. Help ensure that the UN is not blocked from holding this important event to achieve a nuclear-weapon-free world. Call on your government to support the UN High Level Conference when the UNGA makes its decision this October.
For more information visit www.unfoldzero.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Money makes the world go around. The corporations manufacturing nuclear weapons are fueling the nuclear arms race for their own financial gain. They actively lobby their parliaments and governments to continue allocating the funds to nuclear weapons. And they support think tanks and other public initiatives to promote the ‘need’ for nuclear weapons maintenance, modernization or expansion.
You can help curb the power of the nuclear weapons corporations by encouraging your university, church, city, bank or government to divest from them. For more information visit www.nuclearweaponsmoney.org or contact email@example.com.
4. Fold an origami crane
It is believed that folding 1,000 origami cranes brings one a peaceful and healthy life. Following the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, origami crane folding became an action for peace and nuclear abolition, particularly for young people.
This arose from the story of Sadako Sasaki, a child at the time of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Sadako contracted leukaemia from the radioactive fallout. She tried to make 1000 cranes but passed away before she could finish. Her classmates finished the 1000 cranes for her, and then made crane making their message for peace. They raised funds for a memorial to Sadako in the Hiroshima Peace Park. Origami crane making is now taught in schools around the world.
Action: Organise a crane-making workshop at your local school, youth group, workplace or place of worship.

* The Peace Crane Project
Join the International Fast for nuclear abolition
Every year, an International Fast is held in several countries worldwide between Hiroshima and Nagasaki days (6th-9th August). The fast takes place in sorrow and in commemoration of the 300,000 deaths at the atomic bombings of Japan. The fast is supported by organisations around the world including the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Fast by yourself, set up a group of fasters, or join one of the groups fasting in France, Germany, New Zealand, Togo, United Kingdom or USA.
Contact Marc Morgan, Dominique Lalanne or Angie Zelter.
6. Endorse the Hibakusha Appeal for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons
In April 2016, Hidankyo, the Japan Confederation of A and H Bomb Sufferers Organizations, launched an appeal for the total elimination of nuclear weapons. The appeal, which was co-sponsored by the Korean and US associations of Atomic Bomb Victims and supported by Gensuikyo, calls on all governments to conclude a treaty to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons, i.e. a nuclear weapons convention. People around the world are invited to endorse the appeal.
Click here to see the appeal. Send your endorsement to Hidankyo
7. Organise a prayer vigil or church service
Religious and faith-based communities can reflect on the morality of nuclear weapons, the role that ethics can play to abolish nuclear weapons, and the peace-making power of religious leadership and action.
* Organise a special service at your church, mosque, synagogue, temple or other place of worship.
* Endorse the Joint statement of religious leaders and legislators for a nuclear-weapon-free world. See
* Nuclear Disarmament for Religious Leaders and Communities. Available in Arabic, English, German, Japanese and Spanish).
8. Engage your legislator / parliamentarian
Parliamentarians play a key role in determining government policy regarding nuclear abolition. They are able to ask questions in parliament (to which governments have to reply), propose motions, release joint statements and organise events.
Over 800 parliamentarians from across the political spectrum have joined Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) in order to enhance their impact globally. The Inter Parliamentary Union, a body of over 160 parliaments, has adopted a resolution (by consensus) calling on parliaments to work with governments to eliminate the role of nuclear weapons in security doctrines and negotiate a nuclear weapons convention.
* Invite your legislator/parliamentarian to join PNND;
* Ask your legislator/parliamentarian to call on your government to support the UN High-Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament
* PNND: Visit www.pnnd.org. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
* Parliamentary Action Plan for a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World.
9. Engage your mayor and city council
Over 7000 cities are members of Mayors for Peace, which is led by the Mayor of Hiroshima. See www.mayorsforpeace.org.
* Organise a commemoration event at your city council or at a suitable site in your city (Peace Garden, Peace memorial….). Invite the mayor to speak. Present the Hiroshima Peace Declaration which will be released on August 6;
* Ask your city council to adopt a motion honouring the 73rd anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and supporting the call for the total abolition of nuclear weapons.
