Participants will record a brief video message to participate in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons’ Million Pleas to Free the World from Nuclear weapons. The video project has been started by a group of school children from Hiroshima, Japan and is addressed to the 9 countries still in possession of nuclear weapons. People from all over the globe upload a video clip of themselves saying the word “please”. The “pleases” will then be edited into a long virtual chain letter, which will act as a petition to abolish nuclear weapons, worldwide. For more information, see Million Pleas and ICAN.
