Make a difference in the challenge to confront global warming and prevent nuclear war and the development and use of nuclear weapons.
In 2009 President Obama declared that America seeks the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. Ask him to visit Hiroshima and recommit to that vision.
France to Speak on Disarmament

I know that a few people doubted the possibility I offered on the French position last week in a post. We will soon find out for sure what that position is. The French are sending a high level diplomat, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bernard Kouchner, to address the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva June 23. Minister Kouchner will speak about the French position on disarmament.
This is really fantastic news. The international community will no longer have to guesstimate what France’s position is within this new moment for arms control; it should become quite clear from this statement.
UPDATE- This will actually be a speech on disarmament.
UPDATE! The French called the Conference on Disarmament Secretariat just before lunch and canceled this 3pm talk today June 23. NGOs did not find out (like myself) until after getting through security at the United Nations.
