Global Wave

Governments will be meeting at the UN from April 27 – May 22 to discuss nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Civil society is joining together in a global mobilisation calling on governments to abolish nuclear weapons by doing simple Global Wave actions. These are simple actions waving goodbye to nuclear weapons, which can be photographed or filmed for posting on social media with the #globalwave2015 #wavetonukes hashtags or sending to us in New York to present to the governments.

The Global Wave will start at a huge peace rally in New York on April 26, and then go around the world in 24 hours arriving back in New York on April 27 as the government conference begins.

The action will reach us in Britain at 1:20pm on Monday, April 27th. Yorkshire CND is coordinating the actions in the UK - please get in touch (info@yorkshire.org.uk) to let them know if you have anything planned
