Dear Cecile,

Over 2400 signatures in 24 hours! Please add your name to the Peace and Planet petition and then pass it on to your friends!

For Peace and Planet,

Kevin
Dear Cecile,

This April, just before most of the world’s governments meet at the United Nations for the month-long Nuclear                 Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference, thousands of people from around the world will mobilize to             demand the total elimination of nuclear weapons, and to connect and strengthen the movements for peace and environmental, economic, and racial justice.

Please sign our petition for nuclear weapons abolition!

On April 26, the Peace & Planet Mobilization for a Nuclear-Free, Peaceful, Just, & Sustainable World will culminate             with a Peace Festival in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza across the street from the United Nations. There we will deliver            your signature – along with millions of others from Japan and around the world – to NPT and UN officials, calling on           all governments to enter immediate negotiations to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons.

Survivors of nuclear blasts – from Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the Marshall Islands, Korea, and the Southwest United States         – tell us that nuclear weapons inflict scenes of “hell on Earth,” and that “humanity cannot live alongside nuclear         weapons.” And while most nations support the abolition of nuclear weapons, the nuclear-armed States Parties to the      NPT (the U.S., Russia, UK, France and China) have utterly failed to implement the NPT’s Article VI obligation to negotiate    in good faith for the elimination of nuclear weapons. Counting the nuclear-armed States outside the NPT (India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea), the nine nuclear-armed States are spending $300 million every day on their nuclear arsenals, and the dangers of nuclear war are growing.

Thank you for adding your name to the Peace & Planet petition as together we work for a world free from nuclear   weapons.
For Peace and Planet,
Kevin Martin
Executive Director
Peace Action
