In pursuing nuclear weapons, nuclear-armed states – including Britain – have caused long-lasting human and environmental damage and destruction.

When we discuss the terrifying consequences of nuclear war and weapons, it is important to understand that the production of these weapons has already had devastating consequences for many indigenous people across the globe.

Between 1957-62, the British government undertook nuclear testing on the colonised islands of Kiribati. Many are still suffering from birth defects, cancers and other serious illnesses connected to radiation poisoning.

The UK government refuses to acknowledge the experiences of many on the Pacific Islands and has refused to make reparations.

Parliamentary CND – which represents cross-party MPs and Peers who support nuclear disarmament – invites you to join them for a webinar exploring the legacy of British nuclear weapons testing. We are honoured and privileged to have the Kiribati Ambassador to the United Nations join us for this event, where he will share his country’s efforts to get restorative justice.

With guest speakers HE Teburoro Tito, Kiribati Ambassador to the United Nations; Dr Becky Alexis-Martin, author and lecturer; Tom Unterrainer, CND Chair. The event will be chaired by Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP, Vice-Chair of Parliamentary CND.
