We encourage all Friends, attenders and visitors to celebrate the UN Nuclear Ban Treaty which comes into international law on 22 Jan.
Here are some actions
- Join a web event organised by Cambridge Quakers on Friday 22 January 2021
Inspired work, begun by a small group of concerned people in Melbourne Australia, and taken forward by peace campaigners from around the world, has produced the International Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, ICAN,
This campaign won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017.
Join us on Zoom to hear the story, find out more about the Treaty, and what you might do to: pressure the UK government to scale back its weapons, put a stop to the manufacture of nuclear arms. Entry to the event is free. Just sign up with https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/nuclear-weapons-now-banned-a-step-towards-peace-tickets-133129105739

Quakers in Britain have designed a number of downloadable posters which you can put in your home windows on 22 January.

So far, the UK government is refusing to engage with the Treaty. Quakers in Britain are urging the government to sign up to the Treaty and not to boycott it.
