Representatives of various Italian ecopacifist associations linked to I can participates in the “Week of anti-nuclear initiatives”, which also includes a scientific conference (on June 20), in addition to the actual Conference of the signatory states of the TPNW, from June 21 to 23 in Vienna.
The subordination to NATO
The Italian government, due to NATO control, does not participate in the work, not even as an observer, in the Conference of States, parties to the Treaty for the prohibition of nuclear weapons.
An anti-nuclear and non-violent growth
The Delegation of the Italian eco-pacifist associations has adopted various aspects in this process.
Strategic awareness: the intertwining of nuclear threat and ecological-climatic threat.
The general objective that can be strengthened by local denuclearization initiatives.
The TPNW must condition the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) path, so finally war must become a taboo and nonviolence is the path we must learn to walk.
The interrelationships of the ecopacifists
During the big festival, our activists were able to listen to the Prime Minister of New Zealand and the Austrian Foreign Minister on video. They listened to testimonies from nuclear test survivors in Kazakhstan, the Marshall Islands and Nevada, as well as survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
For Italy’s participation in the revision of the TPNW, however, no hope is looming on the horizon.
An important speech: Alessandro Capuzzo, anti-nuclear movement of Trieste
With the “strategic” consideration of spaces opened up by international treaties, Alessandro Capuzzo, from the anti-nuclear movement of Trieste, in a delegation to Vienna concluded the evening.
We confirmed our intent to focus on the connected event: “Give peace a chance”, which was held on June 19 and of which Alessandro Capuzzo is one of the speakers, releasing a document on the record.
The conference brought together state representatives, international organizations, the scientific community, survivors and civil society to discuss and explore solid research and new consequences on humanitarian communities and the risks of nuclear weapons.
Nuclear deterrence is a threat to all life on Earth
The Vienna Scientific Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons denounces that deterrence is a threat to all life on earth.
The week of nuclear ban in Vienna has reached the middle of its path, foresees the revision of the Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Treaty carried out by the States parties.
On Tuesday 21 June 2022 the review conference of the nuclear weapons prohibition treaty begins in Vienna.
There are at the Austria Center, parliamentarians, supporters, policy experts, activists, creatives, UN officials and many other participants from civil society and governments.
I can deserve the Nobel Peace Prize
The role of Ican was decisive, with Beatrice Fihn, the executive director of the Network, who spoke immediately after the UN Secretary General Guterres and the President of the Red Cross, Peter Mauer.
A deadline for the elimination of nuclear weapons
Ambassador Rüdiger Bohn spoke this morning in Vienna for Germany, reiterating that Berlin’s goal remains “a world free from nuclear weapons”. And so far we are in the normal NATO rhetoric, which all the member states of the Alliance conform to.
The meeting will address the problem of greater flexibility in the TPNW and will be able to set a deadline for the elimination of nuclear weapons for states with nuclear weapons that decide to accede to the Treaty.
State declarations and interventions by civil society follow one another at the Vienna conference, called the “High Level Segment”.
