an international network calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons, held its annual
meeting in The Hague following the Hague Appeal for Peace Conference in May 1999. The main
results of the meeting were:
March 1-8 are deemed Global Abolition Days, a week of action for the
elimination of nuclear weapons;
An Abolition 2000 "Call for the New Millenium" was
drafted. This bold, short and inspiring statement is an excellent tool for engaging people
in nuclear abolition and Abolition 2000. (Contact LCNP or our website www.LCNP.org for a
copy to give to friends, acquaintances, etc.);
A Coordinating Committee and a Global Council were established.
For LCNP, Alyn Ware is one of the nine members of the Coordinating Committee, and John
Burroughs and board member Anabel Dwyer are on the Global Council;
A calendar of other disarmament days was produced.
1400 organizations have now endorsed the Abolition 2000 Statement. It is hoped that
this number will rise to 2000 by the year 2000. For more information contact Abolition
2000, 1187 Coast Village Road #123, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.
