At a time like this, with the escalating nuclear danger, the lack of media focus on the greatest existential threat our planet has ever faced, and the overwhelming lack of public awareness, where can we look for inspiration?


Here we feature voices that have inspired us, voices of those who have come before, and voices today who have no elected position or vested financial interests to defend: experts and former officials, indigenous elders and activists, spiritual leaders and artists, musicians and poets, millennials and children.  


All these voices have one thing in common – they have been awakened to the nuclear danger and call for a change in our nuclear policy, in our own attitudes and actions.  May we hear their voices.
