With the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock set at 100 seconds to midnight, and the world’s nuclear powers upgrading their nuclear arsenals and dangerously engaging in provocative military “exercises”, activists and advocates around the world are working to prevent nuclear war and build a nuclear weapons free world.

In the runup to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference scheduled for this August at the United Nations, the international Peace & Planet Network seeks to hold the nuclear weapons states accountable to their NPT Article VI commitment to engage in good faith negotiations for the complete elimination of their nuclear arsenals. We are beginning with a series of webinars to share information and analysis and to coordinate efforts.

The first webinar, “The International Nuclear Disarmament Agenda: Civil Society Perspectives from Seven Key States” will be held Tuesday, February 23 at 10 am EST – 9 am CST – 8 am MST – 7 pm PST. Speakers include:

*   Oleg Bodrov               Public Council of the South Coast of the Gulf of Finland (Russia)
*   Jackie Cabasso            Western States Legal Foundation (US)
*   Ariel Denis                  International Peace Bureau (France)
*   Sharon Dolev              Middle East Treaty Organization (Israel)
*   Daryl Kimball             Arms Control Association (US)
*   Emad Kiyaei               Middle East Treaty Organization (Iran)
*   Zhau Tong                  Tsinghua University (China)

The webinar will be chaired by Kate Hudson, General Secretary of the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
