Change the Game, Share Your Shadow!


Human Wrongs Watch

Geneva – “Change is coming,” stresses International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN)*. “While it sometimes has felt like an impossible task to get rid of nuclear weapons, we’re now seeing a significant transformation of the nuclear weapons debate. This transformation is currently moving us in one direction: towards a treaty banning nuclear weapons.”

Thanks to the dedication and hard work of all our supporters and campaigners, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) played a central role in an important step forward: the recognition and understanding of the unacceptable humanitarian impact of a nuclear weapons detonation.

128 states participated in a recent conference on this topic in Oslo, Norway, and at the  nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty NPT Preparatory Committee, over 80 states explicitly raised concerns about the catastrophic humanitarian consequences that any use of nuclear weapons would have.

ICAN Changing the Game

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons is growing fast and has quickly become a key civil society movement in this field.

At the United Nations and in capitals around the world, ICAN is changing the game around nuclear weapons. Our demand for moving forward is clear: ban nuclear weapons now.

Ban Nukes

On 6 – 13 July Nuclear Abolition Week kicks off with actions for a ban on nuclear weapons all around the world. Nuclear Abolition Week is a global week of action designed to raise awareness of the unacceptable harm caused by nuclear weapons, and the urgent need for a ban treaty.

During this week, campaigners from all around the world will take to the streets, meet with policy makers, organise a public meeting or do something else to show their government that they expect full-fledged support for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.

Vaporizing Everything in a Matter of Moments

A nuclear bomb explosion vaporizes everything in its path in a matter of moments. But such an explosion sometimes also creates permanent memories of those killed.

These nuclear shadows, still visible in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, is a symbol of the devastating effects of nuclear detonations.
