Nuclear fission is the biggest danger to human existence on our planet. In order to pursue the commitments taken on during the first World Social Forum theme against civil and military nuclear power, which was realized in Tokyo and Fukushima from March 23 to 28, 2016, we have the pleasure to invite you to the second Forum that will be held during one of the themes presented by the next World Social Forum in Montreal (Canada).

The goal is to pursue the dynamic of the creation of an international network at the service of intercommunication, mutual support and the launch of joint actions for a world free of the nuclear threat, whether it is civil or military.
