1-6-2022 De 'International campaign to abolish nuclear weapons' organiseert van 18 - 19 juni in Wenen een bijeenkomst waarop ervaren en beginnende activisten tegen kernwapens elkaar kunnen ontmoeten en plannen maken. De bijeenkomst is ook online bij te wonen. De bijeenkomst gaat vooraf aan een bijeenkomst van staten over het VN-verdrag dat kernwapens verbiedt.
De ICAN schrijft:
These past months, we've all watched the threat of nuclear war increase. It is a scary time, but we are coming together in Vienna to do something about it. We're mobilising an even bigger event in Vienna than we first planned.
To respond to this threat and mobilise a big movement opposing it, we're putting together a full week of events around the First Meeting of States Parties. Starting with a civil society forum before the MSP starts. The ICAN Nuclear Ban Forum will be held on 18-19 June in Vienna and online.
This meeting will be an opportunity for both experienced campaigners and people who are just discovering this threat right now to come together, learn from each other and get organised for fighting back!
We need to urgently counter these threats by mobilising everyone to stigmatise threats, use and possession of these horrific weapons and for all governments to join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
