Science for Peace at its January 15th board meeting agreed to join the new International Coalition for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament. The coalition was founded by five international peace organizations — IPB (International Peace Bureau), INES (International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global Responsibility), IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War), and IALANA (International Association of Lawyers against Nuclear Arms). In December 1993 they issued a founding declaration to provide the basis for intensified joint work in the period leading to three important events in 1995: the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Extension conference, the commemoration of the founding of the United Nations, and the 50th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They are now inviting peace organizations to sign on and get to work.
The full text of the declaration is available through the SfP office. Please read Phyllis Creighton’s article on the declaration in the 1994 issue of Peace Magazine – in the Science for Peace section.
