Nuclear Abolition Week 2013: Share Your Shadow

May 21, 2013

Nuclear Abolition Week, 6–13 July 2013, will witness the launch of ICAN’s new public outreach initiative, Share Your Shadow. A nuclear bomb explosion vaporizes everything in its path in a matter of moments. Such an explosion sometimes also creates permanent memories of those killed. These nuclear shadows, still visible in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, are symbols of the devastating effects of nuclear detonations. To show solidarity with victims of nuclear detonations, take a picture of your own shadow and share it with your friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter and through other channels, encouraging them to do the same.
