What is the Nuclear Free World Website?
Nuclear Free World is a website opened to all those interested in participating in the struggle for a nuclear-free world.
It was created to support the construction of a Global Anti-Nuclear Network, proposed in the First Thematic Social Forum on Civil and Military Nuclear, held in March 2016 in Japan within the World Social Forum process (see the Tokyo Appeal for a World-Wide Network towards a nuclear free world).
The construction of the network began in this forum and in the Second Thematic Social Forum on civil and military nuclear held in Montreal, Canada, in August of that year, and shall be continued with a Third Forum in November 2017 in France.
The Nuclear Free World Website is an instrument of horizontal intercommunication between the Network organizations, to facilitate mutual knowledge and exchange between them, of information and struggle experience, the development and the dissemination of knowledge about the risks and consequences of civil and military use of nuclear energy, and the discussion and implementation of joint anti-nuclear action proposals.
Next Monday (6 Nov 2017) , the COP23 Global Climate Conference starts in Bonn, Germany. And the international Don’t Nuke the Climate campaign will be there to stop nuclear power and other false solutions/delusions from corrupting the process.
Japan Times: Real cost of Fukushima disaster will reach $626 billion — triple the government’s estimate
A private think tank says the total cost of the Fukushima disaster could reach ¥70 trillion ($626 billion), or more than three times the government’s latest estimate.
Alarmingly, tensions between the United States and North Korea have again reached crisis proportions. The United States wants North Korea to curtail any further development of its nuclear weapons program, as well as to stop testing its missiles. North Korea evidently seeks to bolster its security by acquiring a sufficiently robust deterrent capability to discourage an attack by the United States. The unpredictable leaders of both countries are pursuing extremely provocative and destabilizing patterns of behavior. Where such dangerous interactions lead no one can now foresee. The risk of this tense situation spiraling out of control should not be minimized.
Because of the importance of the debate that continues to rage over the harmful effects of low-level radioactivity, I am sending out a copy of my recent exchanges on this topic in the context of the Canadian Pugwash Group. As you know, nuclear proponents have been for many years eagerly pushing the idea that there is a safe threshold of exposure and that exposures below this threshold are either completely harmless or actually beneficial. The latter claim is called “hormesis”.
Wladimir et Thierry font signe à mes yeux vers le tissage des contraires nécessaire à la puissance de groupes actifs. L’un est modéré, l’autre fougueux. Les deux sont nécessaires. Et nous devons, je crois, les aimer tous les deux. Le devoir d’harmonie, si utile dans une action aussi vitale que la nôtre, passe par ce tissage qu’il faut caractériser un peu plus précisément.
