ASU members do some incredible work - and some ASU members even win Nobel Peace Prizes. In 2017 ASU members working at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Today, they are celebrating 50 nations signing the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
What started as a hope, has become a reality. The world has banned nuclear weapons.
We call on Australia to sign and ratify the nuclear weapon ban treaty.
A recent Ipsos poll showed that 7 out of 10 Australians supported the ban.
It’s time to be on the right side of history. The nuclear weapon ban treaty is our best chance against our worst weapon.
The most powerful thing Australia can do to progress nuclear disarmament is to ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and encourage all nations to do the same.
