ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that will be held on May 2, 2005 in New York. He believes that the conference would be a crucial time on the global struggle for peace. He warns that some non-nuclear countries may decide to withdraw from the treaty if they see no hope of serious progress. He advocates the Abolition 2000, an organization circulating the petition calling for the beginning of nuclear abolition negotiations.
