In April 1995, the 25-year-old Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) was reviewed at the United Nations to evaluate whether it should be extended. Activists from around the world were dismayed that, in renewing the treaty, nations had left the issue of nuclear abolition off the agenda. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from dozens of countries worldwide responded by writing the founding document of Abolition 2000, setting out an eleven-point program for nuclear disarmament and calling for negotiations to eliminate nuclear weapons. Over 2,000 organizations in more than 90 countries have now enrolled and are actively participating in various working groups to accomplish Abolition 2000’s mission.
The Abolition 2000 network is active in Europe through its supporting organisations. This site collates information on their work in Europe for the abolition of nuclear weapons as well as providing information on current developments on nuclear weapons in Europe. You can also find contacts in specific European countries where groups are actively running campaigns for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
Your group or organisation can join this network and get connected to all the other groups working for the same goal. All you have to do is agree with the Abolition 2000 statement.
