Abolish Testing, Our Mission - ATOM

ATOM Project Honorary Ambassador Karipbek Kuyukov

“Every effort should be made to end nuclear tests in order to avert devastating and harmful effects on the lives of people and that the end of nuclear tests is one of the key means of achieving the goal of a nuclear- weapon-free world”.

The UN General Assembly established the International Day against Nuclear Tests under resolution 64/35 at the initiative of the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Abishuly NAZARBAYEV.

August 29 was chosen as the annual commemoration date because it marks the day in 1991 when Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan, one of the largest test sites in the world, was closed permanently. It was first observed in 2010.

The ATOM Project is calling for a global moment of silence during the August 29 UN Day Against Nuclear Tests. “We are calling for people around the world to observe 11:05 a.m. their local time as a moment of silence,” ATOM Project Honorary Ambassador Karipbek Kuyukov said. “That time was chosen because the clock hands show a V, which stands for victory.  This moment is meant to signify a victory of common sense over fear and a victory for global efforts towards a nuclear-weapons-free world.”

Karipbek Kuyukov is a world renowned artist who paints only with his feet as he was born with no arms, a deformity caused by nuclear radiation. His unique ability and his art depicts the triumph of the human spirit and has received international acclaim for his committed and tireless advocacy to achieve total nuclear abolition.  

The website  www.TheAtomProject.org/100k has been set up to provide information on the various activities and events that will take place to commemorate the event and to show your support a petition can also be signed.
