MAYORS FOR PEACE- RECRUIT YOUR LEADER NOW!

Mayors for Peace is an international organisation, based in Hiroshima, working to oppose nuclear weapons. The term Mayor includes the civic leaders of local authorities such as Provosts and other Council leaders.
The purpose of Mayors for Peace is to target a tier of government that will reflect the anti-nuclear feeling of the people they represent. These leaders of local government are then in turn in a position to put pressure on national leaders to change their nuclear policy. It offers cities a way to transcend national borders and work together to press for nuclear abolition.
As of August 25, 2004, membership stood at 619 cities in 109 countries and regions. In the UK 26 Cities have signed up to Mayors for Peace including London, Belfast, Manchester, Sheffield, Glasgow, Leeds, and Oxford.
All your civic leader has to do to join is send a letter from the head of the Council to the Conference Secretariat stating that your city supports the Programme to Promote the Solidarity of Cities toward the Total Abolition of Nuclear Weapons and would like to join the Mayors for Peace.
