The UN Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons opens for signature and ratification in the UK from 20th September. Join us in calling on our MPs to support it.
The UN’s ground-breaking Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) makes nuclear weapons clearly illegal and provides a framework for their total elimination. It creates two legal pathways for a nuclear-armed country like Britain to join the treaty and get rid of Trident.
WILPF is a long-standing partner in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). We advocated successfully for the TPNW to recognise the specially appalling nuclear impacts on women and girls, and to ban threats to use nuclear weapons along with core prohibitions on activities like the use, development, testing, manufacture, stationing and deployment of these WMD.
Engage your MPs to sign this pledge to work for the UK to sign this important Treaty and bring it into full legal effect.
