WAMM Campaign to Ban All Nuclear Weapons
An End War Committee Campaign
TAKE ACTION TODAY!
The United Nations (UN) General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in Oct 2016 towards “..taking forward multilateral nuclear disarmament [treaty] negotiations [in 2017] for the achievement and maintenance of a world without nuclear weapons..." Treaty negotiations to ban all nuclear weapons will begin in March 2017 – and hopefully will be finalized by the end of 2017. So far, 127 nations support the ban on nuclear weapons. WAMM supports both national and international groups such as the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). We believe that the time to Ban All Nuclear Weapons is NOW!!!
