Promote the Treaty for Nuclear Abolition by ICAN, winners of the Nobel Peace Prize
At a high-level ceremony in New York on 26 September coordinated by ICAN and a cross-regional group of governments, a group of states marked the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons in a very special way: by signing and ratifying the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. With 9 new signatories and 4 new ratifications, the Nuclear Ban Treaty now has 69 signatories and 19 States party. It has also set a record pace for the speed with which it is moving towards becoming law, compared to other treaties on weapons of mass destruction, such as the conventions on chemical and biological weapons, and nuclear testing and proliferation. The treaty will enter into force when 50 countries have signed and ratified, or acceded to, it.
There are various U.S. states and cities now beginning to support the Treaty with resolutions, etc, despite our current Administration boycotting.
