AUGUST 29 - THE UN INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST NUCLEAR TESTS
Astana, August 25: The ATOM Project, which was launched in order to support the end of nuclear testing and finally abolish the nuclear weapons, calls on all people of the world to observe a minute of silence on August 29, the UN International Day Against Nuclear Tests, in memory of all victims of nuclear weapons testing.
The moment of silence is proposed for 11:05 a.m. local time across the world. When clock hands show 11:05, they represent the Roman letter V, which stands for victory. It is hoped that it will also signify a victory of common sense over fear and a victory for nuclear disarmament efforts around the world.
