It is time. Ban nuclear weapons now!

Het NoNukes team hoort sinds kort bij het ICAN netwerk (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons), een wereldwijde campagne van vredesorganisaties die regeringen oproept te werken aan een verdrag dat leidt tot de wereldwijde afschaffing van kernwapens.
