Breaking the Nuclear Chain is a new campaign to inform, motivate and activate people to prevent the looming humanitarian catastrophe represented by the nuclear chain- from uranium mining, to power, to weapons to nuclear waste, it is an initiative of the  Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC), IKV Pax Christi  and Peace Boat.

The modernization of nuclear weapons, the tragedy at Fukushima and the devastation at Jabiluka, among other disasters, are dreadful reminders that have convinced us of the necessity to address the whole nuclear chain. To do this, we will put our emphasis on people and bring together those who have been affected by nuclear weapons, uranium mining, nuclear exports, nuclear power and nuclear waste; as well as those who are working
to disrupt this lacerating chain.
We are collecting testimonies of affected people and by making them available to a broad audience hope to draw a human face on the often abstract debate on nuclear issues. We believe that listening to personal stories can trigger our empathy and make us realize how vulnerable we are to this hazard and how important is to take action to avoid it.
In this community you will find these testimonies, but also facts & figures about all aspects of the nuclear chain, and ways to get involved if you want to become part of the movement to make a difference. Raise your voice with ours and become part of a choir of dissent to break the nuclear chain once and for all.
