Each month the Voices’ newsletter features a particular statement about nuclear weapons.
This month’s statement comes from Angaangaq.
“The production and the use of nuclear weapons does not honor the life itself and brings war to the mind and the people. I come from a land – Greenland – which had never known the energy of war.
Yes, people came here – from lands that know war – but my own people did and do not know this energy. I pray that mankind will be much more aware within ourselves, that we can have the strength and capacity to move on in life without forgetting, always honoring, always remembering everyone.
Everyone in the circle to which we all belong. To grow up to the custodians of mother earth to protect all what is within and upon her.”

They are inviting educational institutions, religious communities, nuclear disarmament groups, and other grassroots organizations to post these videos on their websites and social media platforms.
