Walk to Ban Nuclear Weapons; Walk to End the Madness
On July 7, 2017, 122 member states of the United Nations agreed to an historic treaty, The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. For more than seven decades the world community has lived under the threat of annihilation by these weapons, which are unique in their destructive power, in the unspeakable human suffering they can cause, and in the threat they pose to the environment, to future generations, and indeed to the survival of humanity. The current looming threats of nuclear war make the world security situation even more dangerous than it was a year ago. Now is the time to speak out! Now is the time to take action!
