Join Yorkshire CND and other local grassroots peace campaigners to plan how we work together on a new anti-nuclear campaign in Hull. The historic UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) continues to gather pace with 71 countries having signed up already, but progress in nuclear armed states (such as the UK) is slower. While five Yorkshire MPs have signed the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge to support the treaty in Parliament, none of those are in the Hull region.
In November the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) launched the Cities Appeal for local towns and cities to show support. Last year, Manchester became the first European city to formally support the Treaty – let’s put that regional rivalry to good use and persuade Hull to be the first in Yorkshire!
