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.
Note d’information sur le premier Forum Social Mondial Antinucléaire Civil et Militaire, tenue du 2 au 5 novembre 2017 à Paris.
Le premier Forum Social Mondial Antinucléaire Civil et Militaire – FSM-AN a été réalisé en France, le pays le plus nucléarisé du monde, par une dizaine d’organisations de la société civile de ce pays. Il a réuni plus de 300 personnes, la plupart français mais aussi de 20 autres pays (les nombres exacts nous seront communiqués prochainement), ouvrant des nouvelles possibilités dans la lutte contre la production et l’utilisation des armes atomiques et contre la production d’électricité par des centrales nucléaires.

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.
Building Britain’s first new nuclear reactor since 1995 will cost twice as much as the 2012 Olympics – and by the time it is finished, nuclear power could be a thing of the past. How could the government strike such a bad deal? By Holly Watt
Le mouvement antinucléaire français tourne en rond, vieillit, et finit par co-gérer le système, explique l’auteur de cette tribune. Qui appelle à réinventer les formes de cet engagement alors même que l’industrie nucléaire vacille.
