Since 1972 June 5 has been World Environment Day. Today it is also, for the first time, World Day for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons.
ACDN is very pleased that these two are coinciding. It’s impossible to preserve the planet’s natural and human environment when it is threatened by destructive weapons powerful enough to annihilate its six billion human beings 5 to 10 times over, or when it is degraded insidiously and permanently by radioactive emissions of military and non-military origin.
To eliminate the military dangers, ACDN has joined with the Friends of the Earth and with MSGSV (World without war and without violence) in launching the "Very Last Atom!" Campaign. We are calling on all French citizens to write to the President of the Republic asking him to organise a referendum on France’s participation in the world process for abolishing nuclear arms. This initiative has received support by numerous and important international organisations.
