Global Zero Campaign

left A new international campaign for the abolition of nuclear weapons was launched in Paris on 8 December.  British supporters include billionaire Richard Branson, former Conservative Defence Minister Malcolm Rifkind and former Foreign Minister Margaret Beckett.  International supporters include former US President Jimmy Carter and ex-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

An international opinion poll asked about support for an agreement for all countries to eliminate nuclear weapons according to an agreed timetable.  Overall there was 76 % support for the proposal.  In Britain 55% were in favour.



The campaign are gathering international public support for a statement saying:

We, the undersigned, believe that to protect our children, our grandchildren and our civilization from the threat of nuclear catastrophe, we must eliminate all nuclear weapons globally. We therefore commit to working for a legally binding verifiable agreement, including all nations, to eliminate nuclear weapons by a date certain.�
