Announcing an exciting new global initiative of Abolition 2000 - the May 9 launch of the "Abolition Flame Campaign" at our 2009 Annual General Meeting in New York!
Inspired in part by "the 'Hiroshima Flame' kindled 57 years ago from embers of the U.S. atomic bombing of Japan, the Abolition Flame can only be spread by you. This 'flame' is meant to be a symbol. Whether you are carrying a lit flame as part of the World March or organizing your own event to raise awareness about nuclear abolition, you are part of spreading the Nuclear Abolition Flame!
You can also help spread the flame by helping us send 25,000 letters (one for every nuclear weapon) to US President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Be sure to visit the site regularly. A map will be updated regularly to keep you informed on how many people are sending the letter.
You can help "Spread the Nuclear Abolition Flame" and make the Abolition Flame Campaign a success!
SEND YOUR LETTER to Presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev urging them to abolish nuclear weapons
