CELEBRATE THE 2nd ANNIVERSARY OF THE UN NUCLEAR BAN TREATY!
On January 22nd, 2023, let’s join worldwide celebrations and actions for the entry into force of the United Nations Nuclear Ban Treaty, which states that nuclear weapons are not only immoral, but also illegal according to international law.
We call on all UN Member States to free the world from nuclear weapons by supporting the #nuclearban treaty by ratifying it (if they have not done so already).
We seek to underscore Article 6 of the Treaty, which concerns victim assistance and environmental remediation. In this regard, we call for #JustReparation
As stated in Article 7 of the Treaty, international cooperation and assistance is vital to achieve the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the full implementation of the Treaty.
