On July 15, a new and exciting initiative NoFirstUse Global was launched by organizations/networks from a mix of nuclear armed, allied and non-nuclear countries.
NoFirstUse Global has the objective to achieve the adoption and implementation of nuclear weapons no-first-use policies (NFU) as measures to prevent nuclear war and help achieve a nuclear weapon free world.
NoFirstUse Global includes actions, events, blog articles, examples of legislative action and other resources about no-first-use policies and campaigns/actions for their achievement. One interesting section is Why No-First-Use which addresses questions and mis-conceptions about NFU.
At the launch event NoFirstUse Global kicked off ‘Don’t even think about starting a nuclear war’, a social media action that can be taken around the world, and especially in capital cities.
Take photos in front of the embassies or consulates of nuclear armed states – in particular China, France, Russia, the UK and the USA.
Post your photos on your social media with the hashtag #nofirstuseglobal, and/or tag NoFirstUse Global at Twittter @nfuglobal and Facebook.
For more information plus sample photos, please see Don’t even think about starting a nuclear war.
