World Information Service on Energy
The World Information Service on Energy is based in Amsterdam and was formed by antinuclear activists and researchers in 1978.
The organization has a U.S. office in Washington, D.C. In the United States, WISE has received distribution and other support from Terry Provance, active with the AFSC, USPC and co-convenor of the Mobilization for Survival International Task Force.
In June 1981, the WISE council decided to reduce its coverage of disarmament demonstrations and dates except when the links between nuclear power and nuclear arms "are clear." Another group with ties to IPSITNI-European Nuclear Disarmament - has taken over that function.
WISE's stated mission is:
- "to function as an international switchboard for local and national groups around the world who want to exchange information and support one another."'
