ICAN Civil Society Forum in Oslo, Norway, March 2-3

International Campaign to Aboilish Nuclear Weapons is organizing a forum in Oslo this coming March to mobilize the civil society and the city of Oslo where the government of Norway will host an International Conference on the Humanitarian Consequences of Nuclear Weapons in the following days (March4-5, 2013).

It is a great opportunity to get involved in the global nuclear-free movement; ICAN is taking the lead to establish Nuclear Weapons Convention and its achievements are recognized by the UN Secretary General just recently in his speech titled “Advancing the disarmament and non-proliferation agenda”. He referred to ICAN by saying it “making significant contributions”.

 

IPPNWCR is sending the co-presidents to this forum, one of whom is also invited to the intergovernmental conference.
