The world cannot afford

another world war

the world needs peace

and it is our duty to ensure that it presides forever

over all forms of jingoism, falsehood and injustice.

Peace is the great jewel from on high

we must not sacrifice it on the altar of destruction and death

We’ve arrived next stage to finally eliminate them forever

Sanity prevails.

Update:

The day is rapidly approaching for this

motion to become binding in law.

Please make a note of 22nd January 2021

further updates to come.
The next stage is to bring the nuclear powers down

so they agree to abandon their illegal arsenals

of mass death and destruction

and hand them all over to be totally decomishioned

forever.

It was officially announced last night

that the UN motion which has been so painstakingly

been put together over many years,

to banish all nuclear weapons forever,

has attained the critical number of 50 states

who have now ratified.
Therefore in 90 days this will become binding

on all member states, including the

world’s 9 nuclear armed powers.

please see: https://www.icanw.org/


This is truly wonderful news and could mean also

that all the wasted money put into making and maintaining these

could be redirected to end world poverty

and address the environmental disaster

we are now surrounded by.
Let’s not stop there, let’s banish all war

of all forms as well.

75 year anniversary of atomic bomb drop on Hiroshima,  destructive power still multiplying

11.02 on Thursday 6th August Marks 75 years since the ‘never to be used’ atomic bomb devastated Hiroshima.CND invites you to commemorate the occasion safely with a socially distanced vigil at the Peace Memorialfrom 10.45 to 11.15 to mark the first atomic bomb drop at 11.02.   The Peace Memorial is behind the better known War Memorial,facing the Memorial Garden and market. There are also many online events for those unable to attend in person, listed on CNDUK website. This is part of Global  Peace Wave, first seen in 1987.The organisers of the World Conference have called for another Peace Wave this year, with the following statement:“Let us make the Peace Wave a tremendous campaign by which the anti-nuclear movements, in cooperation with all other movements demanding cuts in military expenditure, protection of human lives, livings and jobs, gender equality and other vital needs, will take the lead in establishing a nuclear weapon-free, peaceful and just world.” 


 Local (Green Party) councillor Lesley Grahame said:    ‘The appropriate response to a massacre anywhere is ‘Never again’.  However since dropping the first atomic bomb 75 years ago, governments of all shades have instead been spending eye-watering sums of money to multiply their capacity for mass destruction.  Just replacing Trident is estimated to take £205 billion of our money away from vital services, while the NHS, local government, schools struggle to cope without sufficient funding, and food poverty leaves many worrying about the end of the week as well as the end of the world.’ Successive UK governments have claimed to support multi-lateral disarmament, but have refused to join the negotiations for multilateral disarmament enshrined in the Treaty for Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.In the latest release of the MoD’s major projects data, the Amber/Red rating given to the Core Production Capability project at Rolls-Royce in Derby has been justified on the basis that delays in reactor core production could slow down progress in building nuclear-armed Dreadnought submarines. This is the first time the MoD have officially acknowledged this risk, and in Norwich we might reasonably ask whether Sizewell performs a similar function in fuelling mass destruction, and putting local and not-so-local residents at risk.  Norwich City Council is among  hundreds of cities, local and regional bodies all around the world that have spoken out in support of the Treaty for Prohibition of Nuclear Weapans through the International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons’  Cities Appeal.Britain has 200 nuclear weapons, 120 are ready to use, each one estimated to deliver 100 kilotons, compared with the 15 kilotons that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  

Sue Wright is taking up CND’s Origami Crane Challenge to create 75 origami cranes to raise money for CND. You can sponsor her by donating through https://cnduk.org/donate/ or by phoning 07508 778 357. She will be displaying these  raising a glass for peace at Pull’s Ferry on Riverside Walk (opposite the Yacht Station), on Sunday 9th August at 6pm. This is the anniversary of the United States’  second atomic bomb drop on Nagasaki.

Announcement

Posted on | June 29, 2020 | No Comments

This is to confirm that for the first time in 14 years

the NPC&PC event has regretably had to be

cancelled owing to precautions necessitated

by the Coronovirus pandemic.

We are hoping that nevertheless a get together

of members may be possible in some way

and also maybe a modest Peace Cycle

to mark UN Peace Day 21st September.

More news will be available nearer the time.

A sign of hope and reassurance in these very difficult times:
