How To: Virtual March
The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has reached its 50th ratification, a landmark moment on the path to a world without nuclear weapons! On 22 January 2021 the treaty will enter into force, entrenching the illegality of nuclear weapons in international law.
JOIN THE VIRTUAL MARCH:
In the period between the 50th ratification and the entry-into-force of the treaty, we invite you to take action! We can’t gather in big numbers, but there’s another way to show your face. Photos!
By organising a quick photograph and uploading it to social media, you can help share the good news that the treaty is here to stay! Send us your photos (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the virtual march which is now rolling on the front page of our website. We will also share them with our missing-in-action Government when the treaty enters into force.
