DO YOU WANT AUSTRALIA TO JOIN THE NUCLEAR WEAPON BAN TREATY?
Nine heads of state have the ability to launch more than 13,000 nuclear weapons between them, threatening all life on this planet.
To address this existential peril, a global majority of nations have negotiated a treaty to finally outlaw nuclear weapons. The 2017 United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is the circuit breaker to the nuclear status quo. It is our best chance against our worst weapon.
STATUS OF THE NUCLEAR WEAPON BAN TREATY:
The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of our work “to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons” and our “ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons”.
