VW Stormtrooper: the comic

Posted by bex — 19 April 2012 at 5:38pm - Comments

For several months, our intrepid active supporters Jedis have been out in force, persuading thousands of members of the public to sign VW Darkside cards - which we've been sending through to the top brass at the VW's headquarters in Milton Keynes, and to their biggest dealerships.

What you can do to promote a peaceful world

Last edited 5 October 2009 at 11:35am

Make no mistake; nuclear weapons are a problem today. There are approximately 30,000 nuclear weapons in the world, belonging to nine countries: US, Russian Federation, UK, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea. More than 1,500 of them ready to launch at a moment's notice, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Although some may consider them an unfortunate relic from the Cold War, the truth is that the nuclear weapons states are clinging to them as hard as they can, reinventing new roles and designs for them, and making proposals for smaller 'useable' weapons. And all this despite plenty of speeches, promises and legally binding treaties to get rid of them!

From its start Greenpeace has campaigned against nuclear weapons: we have tracked plutonium and nuclear waste shipments around the globe; highlighted the dangers of reprocessing; protested against nuclear-powered and nuclear-armed warships or submarines and confronted the nuclear weapons states about their weapons programmes.

And people are with us: the majority of people and states want disarmament now!

If you've been visiting our website regularly, you may have spotted a small but significant change which occurred a couple of weeks ago, when a new 'Community' link appeared in the navigation box to your left. That weeny grey box leads to a whole new section of the website we've been developing over the past year, namely the new online home for our network of active supporter groups across the country.
