Governments will be meeting at the U.N. from April 27 – May 22 to discuss nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Civil society is joining together in a global mobilization calling on governments to agree to abolish nuclear weapons, and re-invest the $100 billion global nuclear weapons budget into areas of social need such as eliminating poverty, addressing climate change, and ensuring basic health care and education world-wide.
The Global Wave Goodbye to Nuclear Weapons will start at a huge peace rally in New York on April 26, and then go around the world in 24 hours, arriving back in New York on April 27 as the government conference begins.
