New Ban treaty phobia Leaflet – an A4 mindmap exercise designed by Christian CND to explore why the UK government refuses to sign the nuclear weapons ban treaty. Great tool to use for discussions. Additional information can be printed from here and here Why do we need the nuclear ban treaty. More information on the ban can be found at www.icanw.org or nuclearban.scot
The UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, supported by an overwhelming number of nations, is open for signature. There is a clear mechanism for nuclear-armed states to sign up. It does not require them to disarm immediately but to enter into negotiations on a time scale for the destruction of their stockpiles. Our Government persists in ignoring a historic opportunity. This ‘mindmap’ seeks to explain why, so that we can bring about a change of heart on this issue.
