Dear friends for peace and against nuclear weapons,

In August 2003, the World Conference against A & H Bombs launched a new signature campaign "Abolish nuclear weapons now! Let there be no more Hiroshimas and No more Nagasakis." (Petition form is attached.) It was endorsed and jointly launched by 7300 participants, including delegates of peace and anti-nuclear organizations of 20 countries at its closing day in Nagasaki (Aug. 9). Now the signature campaign is being geared up with supports from more than 45 countries.

In spring of 2005, the Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons will be held. And August of that year marks the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings. Toward these two important events, this campaign aims to mobilize public opinion on the global scale that refuses the development of new types of nuclear weapons and the use of nuclear weapons and that demands the implementation of the undertaking to achieve the total elimination of nuclear weapons.

Around the same time, Hiroshima Mayor Akiba Tadatoshi and Nagasaki Mayor Ito Iccho proposed a new campaign in a conference of the Mayors for Peace to put pressure on the NPT 2005 Review Conference to start a negotiating process for the abolition of nuclear weapons. And in May this year, Prof. Joseph Rotblat called for the United States to “get rid of its nuclear arsenal”, or “it should withdraw from the Non-Proliferation Treaty.” He then proposed the Pugwash Conference to undertake a campaign to educate and influence public opinion for the abolition of nuclear weapons even if it would mean changing their “traditional mode of work.”

Sharing the common goal of their and other initiatives, our signature campaign aims to build up the grass-root voices to support them all over the world. Both Hiroshima and Nagasaki mayors have vigorously endorsed the petition. In Japan, we plan to collect signatures from 10 million people by summer 2004 and 20 million by the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombing in 2005.

Please endorse the petition and also promote the campaign in your country. We also want to ask you to pitch the petition at your group’s website and ask its visitors for their endorsement (or you could guide the visitors to our website petition page


Let us work together to make 2005 a turning point for a world without nuclear weapons.
