Time and time again, I’m moved by the passion and dedication of Global Zero activists all over the world.
Today was no exception.
A few hours ago, I finished riding with over 150 here people in Washington, DC. And stories from many other cities across the globe are continuing to pour in.
Months ago, we began organizing Bike Around the Bomb to call attention to what these devastating weapons were designed to do. Because we believe that if enough of us rise up and demand an end to the nuclear threat, we can push our leaders down a path to zero.
And today, you showed us that you believe it, too.
Thousands of you gathered around the world today on the 71st anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, in over 30 cities (and counting!), to send a strong message thatnuclear weapons are too dangerous to ignore. That we can’t wait for the inevitable catastrophe before we act.
I’ve said this many times before, and I still believe it: When we eliminate nuclear weapons, it will be because of you. History doesn’t just happen.
We make it happen.
Take a look at all these photos from around the world. It’s hard not to be inspired.
You’ll notice you can scroll down just about forever – that’s how deep our movement runs. I hope you’ll agree that what you see is worth celebrating.
We’ll be in touch soon with where we go from here. Until then, thank you for everything you do to keep us moving forward.
