Citizens of the world are against war and nuclear weapons
Statement on the invasion of Ukraine from Nobel Peace Prize Laureates including IPPNW and ICAN, March 16

“As Nobel Peace Prize Laureates we reject war and nuclear weapons. We call on all our fellow citizens of the world to join us in protecting our planet, home for all of us, from those who threaten to destroy it. The invasion of Ukraine has created a humanitarian disaster for its people. The entire world is facing the greatest threat in history: a large-scale nuclear war, capable of destroying our civilization and causing vast ecological damage across the Earth.”

Ukraine Statement
Back From the Brink

“Russia’s dictator, Vladimir Putin has demonstrated through word and deed the nuclear brink on which the world finds itself and the folly of nuclear weapons as instruments of peace and security. Nuclear weapons appear to have enabled Putin’s war while the West’s nuclear weapons have done nothing to prevent it nor can they be used to stop it. Moreover, this crisis should further reveal to the world the immorality and injustice of nuclear deterrence — the policy of threatening to commit mass murder in the name of one’s security.”
