CND supporters celebrated in 2021 when the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force. Now we need to campaign to get Britain involved with the agreement so it can take steps to join the global majority in support of a nuclear weapons-free world.
The states parties to the TPNW are meeting for the first time in Vienna between 21st-23rd June, 2022. As a non-signatory, the UK can attend as an observer, but it is refusing to do so.
Help us put pressure on the Foreign Secretary to commit to attending, like other NATO states Norway and Germany.
