Nuclear Proliferation - House of Commons

Mar 12, 2008 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Nuclear proliferation is one of the most threatening dangers of the 21st Century. There is a danger that the world is getting out of control as more countries consider the "nuclear" option and terrorist groups within states look at nuclear technology as a way of reaping devastation. It is now more vital than ever that this problem is high on the political agenda. Andy Love MP has agreed to host a meeting in the House of Commons to discuss this issue. Including updating the non proliferation the Treaty, the compliance of all states and the new implications of proliferation when warfare takes place in an asymmetric way by groups outside of states. Joining Andy in this discussion will be, Malcolm Savage from the Oxford Research Group (ORG), which is an independent non-governmental organisation, and registered charity, which works together with others to promote a more sustainable approach to security for the UK and the world. They were awarded the Niwano Peace Prize in 2003 for their work on the promotion of disarmament and non-violent methods for resolving conflict. In April 2005, they were named one of the top 20 think tanks in the UK by The Independent newspaper. Carol Naughton from The British American Security Information Council (BASIC) and is also coordinator of the WMD Awareness Programme that was set up by Joseph Rotblat, the Nobel Peace Laureate and founder of Pugwash. BASIC is a progressive and independent analysis and advocacy organization which researches and provides a critical examination of global security issues, including nuclear policies, military strategies, armaments and disarmament. Carol with director Wayne Brittenden received the award for 'Best Short Environmental Protection Documentary' (Anthropology 101) at The Artivist Film Festival. Guests at the festival included the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger's and representative Araceli Gonzalez, Mr Claes Nobel and actor James Haven. We are presently discussing whether we can view this short 16 minute film at the start of the meeting.
