Cities are Not Targets: A Petition for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons
30 March 2011
Mayor for Peace has assembled the Cities are Not Targets (CANT) petition calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. This petition, with over one million signatures from people all over the world, is now on display at the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations Headquarters in New York. It is displayed as an artistic installation consisting of two three-meter towers of stacked papers containing the petition signatures. This video, produced to accompany the installation, tells the story of Mayors for Peace, the CANT petition, and underscores the important role of civil society in nuclear disarmament.
