The ‘Million Pleas’ Campaign
The Million Pleas campaign is an attempt to create the world’s longest video chain letter through a unique website at www.millionpleas.com. People from all over the world are encouraged to take part in the project to ask for a world free from nuclear weapons. The video was started by a group of primary school children from Hiroshima, Japan, and is addressed to the nine countries still in possession of nuclear weapons. The project asks that everyone upload a two-second video clip of themselves saying the word “Please”. The “pleases” will then be edited into a long virtual chain letter, acting as a petition to abolish nuclear weapons worldwide. A Hiroshima bomb survivor delivers the final words in the video.The campaign was launched on Hiroshima Day 6 August 2010.
