Close the door on nuclear testing

closethedoorToday it’s hard to imagine that nuclear bombs exploded all the time in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Yet more than 2,000 nuclear bombs were tested all over the world, contaminating the land and air and affecting people everywhere.

Raise your voice for a safer, more secure world. Join the campaign to Close the Door on Nuclear Testing!

In 1996, the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty put the brakes on this madness. But until all the countries of the world support the Treaty, the threat of further testing and a renewed nuclear arms race looms over us all.

It’s time to take a stand against this nuclear recklessness. Let’s call on all politicians, governments and States to honour the Treaty. Let’s look to a future of hope, where we don’t have nuclear weapons. Let’s close the door on nuclear testing, now and forever.
