70th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
The 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August is a significant moment for our campaign and the work to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons. It will be a great opportunity to raise awareness on the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and the need to negotiate a treaty to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons.
The Chair’s summary of the Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons in Nayarit indicated the 70th Anniversary as the appropriate milestone to negotiate such a treaty.It is therefore important that ICAN’s partner organisations make this a key date in our calendar and organize events and actions all over the world.Use the material and suggestions below to raise awareness on the need to negotiate a treaty banning nuclear weapons. Do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any question.
