Nuclear weapons, the climate crisis, social justice, and the COVID-19 pandemic

April 27, 2020
An online international conference sponsored by the Rosa Luxembourg Stiftung NYC on April 25 provided a unique opportunity for the world’s nuclear disarmament campaigns, allied movements and organizations, and diplomats committed to banning and eliminating nuclear weapons to amplify nuclear abolition demands and to show how the nuclear dangers interconnect with the threats posed by climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the injustices of our world.
Among the speakers at “Abolish nuclear weapons; resist and reverse the climate crisis; for social and economic justice,” which was co-sponsored by IPPNW, was regional vice president for Latin America Carlos Umaña, who discussed ICAN and the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (at the 20:15 mark in the conference video).
United Nations Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Ms. Izumi Nakamitsu addressed the Hibakusha Signature Appeal Campaign.
