Nuclear Ban Communities
In July 2017, the UN adopted the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), which
forbids testing, building, funding and threatening to use them. Cities are the main targets, and now all
over the world they are taking action to push their national governments to join the Treaty.
West Midlands CND is part of this movement to make UK towns
and cities Nuclear Ban Communities. Working with your local
politicians, your town or city council could soon join others who are
already working towards a nuclear free world. Manchester, Leeds,
Oxford and Norwich Councils have already passed resolutions
supporting the TPNW and are calling on the UK Government to
sign it – let’s get the West Midlands signed up too.
To get started, please contact your local councillor to explain that
you would like them to sign a pledge of support for the Treaty.The
names of those who sign would be published on the West
Midlands CND website. Councillors can sign by emailing
[email protected] expressing their support, or by signing a copy of the pledge and returning it to
the West Midlands CND office. Contact WMCND if you need support or further information!
