EMAIL YOUR MP: BIDEN AND THE BAN

While the incoming Biden presidency will bring a more constructive approach to US nuclear weapons policy, we cannot afford to be complacent. Write to your federal parliamentary representatives to tell them that the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will enter into force on 22 January 2021. The time is right for Australia to do its part by signing and ratifying the ban.

JOIN THE VIRTUAL MARCH

We’re marching online! What does that mean? It means from 10 December until 22 January (the date of the Treaty’s entry into force) we will host a rolling stream of your faces on our website and social media. They will be compiled and shared with our federal decision-makers in January. Snap a pic and send it to us

PARLIAMENTARY PLEDGE

Parliamentarians played a major role in realising the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The Parliamentary Pledge is a commitment by parliamentarians around the world to work for their government to join the Treaty.

CITIES APPEAL

The ICAN Cities Appeal is a global call from cities and towns in support of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. From the city to the desert, all of towns have a role to play in addressing the threat posed by nuclear weapons.

QUIT NUKES: NUCLEAR WEAPON FREE FINANCE

Quit Nukes is advocating for Australian superannuation funds to cut ties with nuclear weapon producing companies, in light of the ban treaty’s prohibition on assisting with the production of nuclear arms. Quit Nukes is a joint campaign of ICAN Australia and the Medical Association for Prevention of War.
