To: To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

Urging the Federal government to sign the treaty to outlaw nuclear weapons.

Urging the Federal government to sign the treaty to outlaw nuclear weapons.

We believe that the Federal government should be at the forefront of global efforts to outlaw and eliminate nuclear weapons.

Having now been approved by the UN, the treaty will be open for signatures to all States on September 20, 2017. We are asking the Federal government to sign the treaty.

Why is this important?

More than 120 nations adopted the first international treaty banning nuclear weapons on Friday July 7, 2017 at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

Unfortunately the Australian Federal government have refused to take part in these historical negotiations for this treaty.
The agreement is a very clear statement that the international community wants to move to a nuclear weapons-free world.

As we commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the horrific nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we are urging the Federal government to join and ratify the treaty to outlaw nuclear weapons once and for all.
