Around the world women are mobilising and leading actions to send a strong message during the UN negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.
The National Day of Action will celebrate and draw media attention to the ban negotiations. It is an opportunity to stand against Australia’s boycott of this historic process and to display the diversity and high level of public support for a ban nationwide.
We must continue to pressure the Australian Government to support a ban and demonstrate that there is political risk in boycotting the negotiations.
Australia has signed on to treaties banning chemical and biological weapons, anti-personnel landmines and cluster munitions. Australia must now support a ban on the most catastrophic weapon ever invented.
