FILM: The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons – York

19 May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The York Premiere of the documentary film about efforts to bring a nuclear weapon ban treaty into international law and the role of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, ICAN. All told through the voices of leading activists from several different organizations and countries and the president of the negotiating conference.

This 56 minute documentary film takes the viewer through a brief history of the bomb and the anti-nuclear activism that has pushed to eliminate them ever since their invention. It moves into a consideration of the humanitarian initiative that successfully challenged the dominant security narrative and the historic steps taken since 2010 to take the treaty from a dream into a reality. Finally, the film shows what can be done by anyone to help bring the treaty into force and to stigmatise nuclear weapons until they are finally eradicated.

Followed by a discussion with local peace campaigners, who are asking York to follow the example of Manchester and cities across the globe in declaring support for the ban.
