The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) – which entered international law on January 22nd – offers the UK government an opportunity to engage in the global nuclear disarmament process, and honour its commitment to a world without nuclear weapons. But shamefully the UK government refused to even participate in the treaty talks and now says it will never sign. But that will not stop us from making progress.
CND is calling on our supporters to arrange a meeting with your MP.
Put pressure on your MP
We need you to contact your local MP to explain why this treaty is so important. Face to face meetings may not be going ahead but you can request a virtual meeting with your MP.

Why this action is important
This is a historic treaty which is a significant pointer towards changing international attitudes to nuclear weapons. Previous treaties prohibiting chemical and biological weapons helped to stigmatise them in the minds of the public. This is now taking place with nuclear weapons and we need to explain to MPs how they can be on the right side of history.
