The Move the Nuclear Weapons Money platform was launched at a press conference held at the United Nations on March 28, 2018, organised by the co-sponsoring organizations.
The press conference high-lighted the increasing risk of a nuclear war occurring by accident, miscalculation or intent; the importance of diplomacy to resolve international disputes and replace the reliance on nuclear weapons, and the need to confront the nuclear weapons corporations which have a vested interested in maintaining the nuclear arms race.
Speakers at the press conference also announced Count the Nuclear Weapons Money, an exciting action to highlight the issue by physically counting $1 trillion dollars (in one million mock notes each of $1 million value). The action is planned for New York in conjunction with a key UN disarmament event.
