What does this Global Day of Action look like?
All around the world, people will be taking action to show the delegations in New York that we expect them to be bold, courageous and use the TPNW to dismantle nuclear deterrence, and make sure the rest of the world is paying attention to this crucial opportunity. Your action can take whatever shape you can pull off! Big demonstrations bringing together thousands of people are and look amazing, but you don’t always have to have the numbers to make an impact. A strong sign, a good backdrop can be enough to get the message across, but if you have the resources and energy to go big, then this is the right time to hit the streets! With the right action and a good image, you can make media in your country pay attention. With enough actions around the world, we can make the pressure feel global.
Wherever you are, make sure to be loud and proud that the TPNW is here and is the way to end the threat of nuclear weapons. And if you need some ideas to get started, check out our gallery of actions below for inspiration.
Calendar: List your event
To make this global day of action big and bold, we need to amplify each other’s actions - ahead of time and on the 26th itself. So if you’re planning an action, please add it to the 2MSP calendar allowing participants from around the world to find and engage with what you’re doing. We want to show that these events are taking place around the world, so please take a quick moment to post your event details.
