Dear friends for peace and against nuclear weapons,
In August 2003, the World Conference against A & H Bombs launched a new signature campaign “Abolish nuclear weapons now! Let there be no more Hiroshimas and No more Nagasakis.” (Petition form is attached.) It was endorsed and jointly launched by 7300 participants, including delegates of peace and anti-nuclear organizations of 20 countries at its closing day in Nagasaki (Aug. 9). Now the signature campaign is being geared up with supports from more than 45 countries.
In spring of 2005, the Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons will be held. And August of that year marks the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings.
