WILPF UK has joined many other NGOs to protest the government’s current position on the UN treaty negotiations currently taking place in New York regarding the banning of nuclear weapons.

Nuclear weapons have catastrophic consequences both for humanity and the environment, and WILPF believes that women in particular are impacted and disadvantaged by nuclear arms races, to say nothing of nuclear conflict. The UK government must take a stronger position – ANY position – in these negotiations. Sitting them out is not an option!
