INLAP Criminality of Nuclear Weapons campaign - new site

'The World Court Project is working to abolish nuclear weapons through the law because they violate our human values. It is a project of INLAP, the Institute for Law, Accountability and Peace.'
We gladly repost this announcement of their new website:

Please have a look at our new website for the Criminality of Nuclear Weapons campaign on
On the Home Page you can:
v  Pledge your conviction that any use of nuclear weapons would be a war crime (if you haven’t already done this),
v  See our campaigning film which shows concerned citizens, like us, making their personal pledges,
v  Spread the message on the right hand side of the page by email and social media through easy links at the bottom of the page,
v  Make a donation to support our cause
By making your pledge you will become part of a worldwide grassroots movement of citizens upholding their deepest values through the law
The world is becoming increasingly aware that that any use of nuclear weapons would have catastrophic consequences which humanity could not cope with. 
Prevention is better than cure.  The only remedy is the total abolition of all nuclear weapons everywhere.
The growing number of pledges will be used to support the ever stronger call for talks to start on a treaty to get rid of all of them, everywhere. We shall take every possible opportunity to present the pledges to decision makers and demand that they take notice.  There will be a very important opportunity for this in May 2015 when representatives of most countries will meet at the UN to discuss nuclear disarmament.
Please put aside a moment to sign now on
Your comments are most welcome.  If you want to reply to this you can email
Thank you and Best Wishes
George Farebrother (Secretary)

'Not as dumb as he looks' - Muhammad Ali on Bertrand Russell

In his autobiography The Greatest: My Own Story, Muhammad Ali recounts how Bertrand Russell got in contact with him, and their ensuing correspondence:

For days I was talking to people from a whole new world. People who were not even interested in sports, especially prizefighting. One in particular I will never forget: a remarkable man, seventy years older than me but with a fresh outlook which seemed fairer than that of any white man I had ever met in America.
My brother Rahaman had handed me the phone, saying, ‘Operator says a Mr. Bertrand Russell is calling Mr. Muhammad Ali.’ I took it and heard the crisp accent of an Englishman: ‘Is this Muhammad Ali?’ When I said it was, he asked if I had been quoted correctly.
I acknowledged that I had been, but wondered out loud, ‘Why does everyone want to know what I think about Viet Nam? I’m no politician, no leader. I’m just an athlete.’
‘Well,’ he said, ‘this is a war more barbaric than others, and because a mystique is built up around a cham…

Nuclear Posture Review: Two letters of protest from Japan

The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation received copies of the following letters, dated 6 February 2018, from the Japan Council against A and H Bombs. The letters, written in response to the publication of the US Nuclear Posture Review, are addressed to President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. We ask that as many people and organisations as possible circulate these letters as an act of solidarity with anti-nuclear campaigners in "Japan, the A-bombed country".

Letter of Protest against the US Nuclear Posture Review
We, of the people of Japan, the A-bombed country, strongly protest against your nuclear policy formulated in the newly released ‘Nuclear Posture Review’, which brings the US much closer to the actual use of nuclear weapons by modernizing your nuclear arsenals and developing new nuclear weapons.
Trying to justify that nuclear weapons are necessary for security, the Nuclear Post…

Vanunu update

Dear Friend and Vanunu supporter,

It is a long time since we last sent you any news of Mordechai for which we apologise. It has been a complicated and difficult period particularly with Mordechai not wanting the campaign for his freedom to continue. However, we thought now was the time for an update, because if you hadn't seen the relevant issues of the Morning Star, Scottish Herald or, just this week, The Guardian, you probably wouldn't be fully aware of what Mordechai had been suffering, once again, at the hands of the vindictive and malicious Israeli authorities.

For some while Mordechai has been threatened with a return to prison for speaking with foreigners; including friends, supporters and journalists. For breaking this restriction he was eventually sentenced to six months in prison. He appealed against this and at a hearing of the Supreme Court, some months ago, this sentence was reduced to three months. As an alternative Mordechai was offered to do a period of Community…
