One of ICAN’s key objective for the March events was to utilise social media channels to raise awareness of the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons and the need for a global ban treaty. In the run up, during and in the aftermath of these events, several hundred Twitter users tweeted about the events using the hashtag #goodbyenukes. Below is an excerpt of these tweets (click image to see all mentions):


Several thousands of ICAN’s 44,000 Facebook followers also liked and shared ICAN’s post during the March events, giving us a total social reach of 185,309 people from March 1 to March 7.
