O Ελληνικός Ερυθρός Σταυρός και πάλι απών από τις αντιπυρηνικές δράσεις του ΔΕΣ


Πανελλήνια Ιατρική Εταιρεία κατά της πυρηνικής και βιοχημικής απειλής

για την απουσία του Ελληνικού Ερυθρού Σταυρού από την αντιπυρηνική πρωτοβουλία του Διεθνούς ΕΣ 

        Από τις 26-11-2011 ο Διεθνής Ερυθρός Σταυρός και η Ερυθρά Ημισέληνος υιοθέτησαν ψήφισμα προώθησης σε συνεργασία με NGO όπως η δική μας (IPPNW) μέσω του ΟΗΕ της απαγόρευσης των πυρηνικών    όπλων, σαν όπλα που καταπατούν το ανθρωπιστικό δίκαιο. Παρ ότι απευθυνθήκαμε στον Ελληνικό Ερυθρό Σταυρό για την ενεργοποίησή τους σε αυτή την πρωτοβουλία δεν βρήκαμε καμιά ανταπόκριση.
Στις 17-18 Νοεμβρίου 2013 έγινε στο Σύδνεϋ της Αυστραλίας ξανά σύσκεψη του ΔΕΣ στην οποία επαναβεβαιώθηκε η απόφαση της Διεθνούς οργάνωσης να προωθήσει την πλήρη απαγόρευση των πυρηνικών με 4ετές πλάνο εργασίας.
Όπως φαίνεται από τον κατάλογο των συνεργαζόμενων τοπικών κλάδων του ΔΕΣ δυστυχώς και πάλι η Ελλάδα απουσιάζει εντελώς από την ιστορική αυτή απόφαση.

Working towards the elimination of nuclear weapons:
Four-year action plan
The Council of Delegates,
reiterating its deep concern about the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons, including the unspeakable human suffering that their use would cause and the threat that such weapons pose to food production, the environment and future generations,
expressing its satisfaction that the concerns raised by the Council of Delegates in 2011 about the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, the lack of any adequate humanitarian response capacity and the international humanitarian law issues arising from their use, are increasingly being recognized and raised by States in national and international fora,
welcoming on-going and new initiatives that help ensure that nuclear weapons are never used again and that can advance their elimination, in particular the March 2013 Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, the 2012 and 2013 meetings of the Preparatory Committee for the 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, the meetings of the UN Open-ended Working Group on Taking Forward Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament Negotiations and the UN General Assembly’s High-Level Meeting on Nuclear Disarmament, as well as additional multilateral, bilateral and national initiatives pursuing these goals,
welcoming also the decision by the Government of Mexico to host a conference addressing the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons in February 2014,
reaffirming the position and actions set out in Resolution 1 of the 2011 Council of Delegates and commending the efforts of the components of the Movement to implement those actions at the national and international levels, including the National Society workshops held in Vienna (2012) and in Hiroshima (2013) and the National Society network established to support work on this issue,
recognizing that much more needs to be done to raise awareness of the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and to advance the objectives of (a) ensuring that nuclear weapons are never used again and (b) prohibiting the use of and completely eliminating nuclear weapons,
1. adopts ‘Working towards the elimination of nuclear weapons: Four-year action plan’;

2. urges all components of the Movement to implement the action plan, in particular by

(a) undertaking, to the extent possible, the action plan’s activities to raise awareness of (i) the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons, (ii) the lack of any adequate humanitarian response capacity, (iii) the view expressed in Resolution 1 of 2011 that it is difficult to envisage how any use of nuclear weapons could be compatible with the rules of international humanitarian law, and (iv) the need for concrete action leading to a prohibition on the use of nuclear weapons and their elimination,
b) engaging, to the extent possible, with governments to (i) encourage their active participation in current fora addressing the threat of nuclear weapons, (ii) convey the Movement’s concerns and position on nuclear weapons, and (iii) urge them to take concrete steps leading to the negotiation of a legally binding international agreement to prohibit the use of and completely eliminate nuclear weapons – based on existing commitments and international obligations – and to conclude such negotiations with urgency and determination;
3. invites the Federation to play a coordination role in order to facilitate National Societies’ endeavours in related areas as appropriate;

4. invites National Societies to exchange their knowledge and experiences within the Movement;

5. invites the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to monitor implementation of the Movement’s action plan and to report, as necessary, to the Council of Delegates on the progress made on the issue of nuclear weapons and the implementation of Resolution 1.
