Parliamentary Pledge

Parliamentary Pledge for the Treaty

on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

We, the undersigned parliamentarians, warmly welcome the adoption of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 7 July 2017 as a significant step towards the realization of a nuclear-weapon-free world.

We share the deep concern expressed in the preamble about the catastrophic humanitarian consequences that would result from any use of nuclear weapons and we recognize the consequent need to eliminate these inhumane and abhorrent weapons.

As parliamentarians, we pledge to work for the signature and ratification of this landmark treaty by our respective countries, as we consider the abolition of nuclear weapons to be a global public good of the highest order and an essential step to promote the security and well-being of all peoples.

Have all your elected representatives signed ?

If not, why not ask them to sign ?

All you’d need to do is write a brief message in your own words asking them to sign, attaching the bilingual ICAN pledge, and including your name and address (so that they know that the message comes from a constituent).
