from the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons
A new UN working group on nuclear disarmament will begin next week in Geneva, Switzerland and new legal measures and norms are on the agenda.
In this working group, states have a unique opportunity to start work on the elements and provisions a new treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons should include.
123 states have endorsed the humanitarian pledge and committed to “fill the legal gap” for the prohibition and elimination of nuclear weapons. This working group is an excellent place for governments to start work on a ban on nuclear weapons.
Tell your ambassador at the United Nations in Geneva that your country needs to attend these meetings and start working on a new treaty banning nuclear weapons.
