Christian CND signs letter to Defence Secretary on Nuclear Ban Treaty

As the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) prepares to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on Sunday, Christian CND has joined other groups in the UK in writing to the Defence Secretary calling on the UK Government to sign the Treaty.

The new Treaty was agreed by 122 states at the United Nations and followed months of negotiation. The UK, along with the other nuclear-armed states, declined to take part at any stage.

Campaigners handed the letter in at the Ministry of Defence following a ‘die-in’ to draw attention to the appalling consequences of nuclear weapons.
