ICAN Update

January 16, 2008


Global support for ICAN keeps on growing

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) has become an official supporter of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), and has launched “Students for a Nuclear Weapons-Free World” to encourage global youth involvement in nuclear disarmament issues. WFUNA joins the UK’s Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), Mayors for Peace, Abolition 2000, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), the Nobel Women’s Initiative, and the Mouvement de la Paix in France as global ICAN partners.

ICAN’s roving ambassador Bill Williams visited the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, and France in the closing months of 2007, promoting the campaign among national peace and disarmament organizations. Dr. Williams spoke in St. Gallen to physicians and medical students from all over Switzerland, where the IPPNW affiliate has recently launched a campaign to make Europe nuclear weapons free. In Copenhagen he shared a platform with Mayors For Peace Chair Tadatoshi Akiba and IPPNW Board member Caecilie Buhmann at the ICAN launch in Denmark, where they spoke to an audience of more than 800 high school students.
