Nuclear Weapon Free

18.11.2007 On Sunday the 18th of November the Mayor of Hiroshima Hadatoshi Akiba visited Stockholm, Sweden. For his visit Swedish students in IPPNW arranged the first "Nuclear Weapon Free - my cup of tea" event. This is a new activity that can be done all over the world in IPPNW as a contribution to the ICAN campaign. There are still 27.000 nuclear weapons in the world. The purpose of each and every one of them is their potential of causing a major disaster. But in fact, they are causing disaster every day.

People are suffering from disease & deprivation. Wouldn´t the work and money be better spent on health care and education? We don´t need weapons of mass destruction. We need a mass destruction of weapons. It´s time for a peaceful chain reaction. Let´s start it together! Next time you have tea with someone; talk about a nuclear weapon free world. That´s sharing a nice cup of tea.
