Calling for an end to nuclear weapons

We continued to focus on nuclear weapons throughout the whole of August, given both the international tensions around nuclear weapons and nuclear power with respect to Ukraine, and the ongoing Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty conference at the UN in New York. Sadly, after four weeks of negotations, Russia blocked the adoption of any substantive commitments because it opposed any mention of the dangers at Zaporizhzhia power plant in Ukraine.

We also called on the UK government NOT to renew the UK’s nuclear weapons system and to sign the UN treaty which would prohibit all nuclear weapons. You can see our leaflet on our previous August pages.
