Citizens’ Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the catastrophic humanitarian consequences that would result from any use of nuclear weapons, and recognise the consequent need to completely eliminate such weapons. This remains the only way to guarantee that nuclear weapons are never used again under any circumstances.
We welcome the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, recognising that only the global abolition of nuclear weapons can ensure a future for humanity and all forms of life. We urge all states to sign and ratify this Treaty.
We note that the British government has refused to sign this treaty and in this absence of proper leadership on this vital question, we believe that it falls to the citizens of this country, themselves, to support the global nuclear ban treaty.
We hereby sign this Citizens’ Treaty in support of the global abolition of nuclear weapons.
