The time for nuclear disarmament in NOW

***TAKE ACTION***PLEASE CIRCULATE***TAKE ACTION***

The time for nuclear disarmament in NOW.

Every nation in the world received an Abolition 2000 mailing in early February addressed to the Foreign Minister and the Ambassadors at UN missions in Geneva and New York. (see attached letter)

Out letter calls on every nation attending the Nuclear

Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference in May 2005 to come prepared with national plans and a timeline for disarmament of their country’s nuclear arsenals, including a complete inventory of all fissile materials for their country as well as an outline of conditions that must be met in order for nuclear weapons and nuclear-capable states to start the irreversible, verifiable dismantlement of their nuclear arsenals.

The following documents prepared by the nuclear abolition community were included in the mailing:

• Security and Survival: The Case for a Nuclear Weapons Convention, which lays out all the steps needed for the total elimination of nuclear weapons;
// www.lcnp.org/mnwc/convention.htm

• NGO Shadow Report: Accountability is Democracy, Transparency is Security; a listing of fissile materials prepared by NGOs in countries around the world
//www.reachingcriticalwill.org/legal/npt/shadowreport/ngoshadrepindex.html

• International Sustainable Energy Fund Statute;
//www.gracelinks.org/energy/docs/ISEF-Statute-final.pdf

• Compendium of Past NGO Recommendations to the NPT delegates.
//www.reachingcriticalwill.org/legal/npt/nptindex1.html#ngo_reports

We urge you to follow up!

Make an appointment with your foreign ministry or consulate to discuss your government’s plans :
- to report on their fissile material holdings at the NPT;
- to dismantle their arsenals;
- to begin negotiating for nuclear disarmament within a time bound framework, so that negotiations can be successfully concluded by 2010 with complete elimination of nuclear weapons and appropriate safeguarding of nuclear materials by 2020, as requested by the Mayors Emergency Campaign to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons.
(For Foreign Ministry Contact Information, see
//www.reachingcriticalwill.org/resources/govcontacts/govindex.html)

Write a letter to your head of state asking what plans are being made in your country to comply with the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Ask others to write as well.

Distribute this action alert to your friends and colleagues, and encourage them to also take action.

Translate and publish your version of the attached press release, Global Anti-Nuke Movement Demands Plan by May, and circulate it to local and national press in your country.

The world community must deliver a unified and unequivocal message that arduously negotiated treaties and international agreements cannot be simply dismissed, undermined or negated. Nations must come to this year’s NPT prepared with plans for nuclear disarmament. The message is out. We need your help to make it happen!

Let us know the results of your actions. Send a brief report to monika@abolitionnow.org. Was your ministry or consulate willing to meet with you? How did the meeting go? What reasons, if any, did your government give you for not implementing the agreements they have made? Did you receive an answer from your head of state?

We will keep track of your responses on //www.abolitionnow.org to help others know your country's position.
