Join us to Count the Nuclear Weapons Money, New York: October 24-30 2019.
One trillion dollars
We're showing the scale
while governments meet at the United Nations
for United Nations Disarmament Week and the UN General Assembly, Oct 24-30, 2019.
We’re counting the money by hand
$100 million per minute in $1million dollar notes, and symbolically re-allocating these to climate protection, poverty alleviation and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Counting is taking 7 days and nights.
You can help!
Count the nuclear weapons money for ten minutes, half an hour or more, and decide where you would like this money to be invested instead of nuclear weapons.
