Nuke Free Europe is a campaign that has been launched to make Europe a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone. It was initiated by 8 campaigning organisations: the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation; Church and Peace; the International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global Responsibility (INES); the International Peace Bureau (IPB); the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC); the European section of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW); Pax Christi International; and Quakers Europe. Several national peace organisations support the campaign. They have come together to express their concern about the global situation which they say is more dangerous than it has ever been.
