Million pleas – campaign to free our world of nuclear weapons


“We want to make the world’s longest video chain letter.

The video has been started by a group of school children from Hiroshima, Japan and is addressed to the 9 countries still in possession of nuclear weapons. We’re asking people from all over the globe to upload a video clip of themselves saying the word “please”. The “pleases” will then be edited into a long virtual chain letter, which will act as a petition to abolish nuclear weapons, worldwide.

The campaign is an initiative of ICAN, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons, and is being launched in this the 65th anniversary year of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Please add your voice to the campaign.” visit the million pleas

  5. I am haunted by the misuse of nuclear materials from the first bomb to the current use of low grade nuclear bullet heads, and the provision of power. PLEASE, every country in the world, do not mine, sell or use nuclear material, keep it out of the hands of terrorists and sociopaths. The world is a beautiful place and can be made equitable, but WITHOUT nuclear weapons. Thankyou AGriffiths-Marsh
