What the world is doing to be able to say: Never again
The history about what happen that August 6 (1945) in Hiroshima, is well known, not only because the horror of the moment and the course of history of what happen then, but also because of memory and fight of survivors.
Since then, activists, governments, international organizations, academia, journalists expressed themselves against nuclear bombs but there is still enough stockpiles to end with the world many times.
Nuclear disarmament evolved in many ways with some limit success but it is today, with the humanitarian approach that a real change could happen.
For the first time ever, governments, civil society, international organizations met in Oslo to discuss about the catastrophic consequences of nuclear weapons in March 2013, where scientific evidence of the immediate consequences of a detonation and the ( im) possible response was presented, after Oslo, the international community met again in Mexico Nayarit (February 2014) to reinforce the evidence of what could happen in case of a detonation or an accident.
An informal group of 16 countries was created in Geneva around 2011, many joint declarations and presentations happen in the diplomatic traditional forum, with more and more support each time. The ICRC has also an official document about the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and their commitment towards their elimination.
The Latin America and Caribbean Community of countries (CELAC) has a declaration negotiated in Buenos Aires in 2013, presented at the High Level Panel last September by Cuba on the need of the start of negotiations towards the nuclear weapons ban and there is also the civil society movement International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) along with other ones, that today are invigorate with all that is going on.
Every single statement, conference, declaration, event, done under the humanitarian perspective, has the unequivocal political intention to go towards the Nuclear Weapons total BAN.
Next Conference is Vienna, December 2014, we ll see, how the world can finally manage to say: Never Again.
