International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN)

Launched in 2007, ICAN is a new campaign initiated by MAPW and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW).

ICAN has joined with mayors, civil society groups, non-government organisations, churches and citizens to build a ground swell of public opinion to demand an end to nuclear weapons.

ICAN focuses on the roots of the nuclear weapons problem - the continued possession of nuclear weapons by a small minority of countries who risk their use by design, accident, miscalculation or by terrorists, and whose weapons are an incentive to others to also become nuclear armed.

ICAN aims to achieve a Nuclear Weapons Convention to ban the development, possession and use of nuclear weapons. 

ICAN in Australia greatly benefits from the support of the Poola Foundation (Tom Kantor Fund).

Get involved in this exciting and ambitious campaign! Together we all can work towards a nuclear weapons free world!
