About the campaign
Move the Nuclear Weapons Money
is an international campaign to:
cut nuclear weapons budgets;
encourage divestment from companies manufacturing nuclear weapons and their delivery systems;
reallocate these budgets and investments to meet economic, social and environmental need – such as ending poverty, protecting the climate, supporting renewable energy, creating jobs, and providing adequate healthcare, housing and education for all.
The campaign was launched in October 2016 by the Basel Peace Office, International Peace Bureau, World Future Council and Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament.
It now includes a number of other organisations and networks including the Global Security Institute, UNFOLD ZERO, World Federalist Movement and the Abolition 2000 Working Group on Economic Dimensions of Nuclearism.
The campaign works closely with the Global Campaign on Military Spending.
