United Nations committee releases nuclear weapons ban treaty draft

Posted by Elana Simon on May 25, 2017

On May 22, Committee Chairwoman Elayne Whyte Gómez from Costa Rica released a draft of the nuclear ban treaty. The draft treaty comprehensively prohibits nuclear weapons on the basis of their humanitarian impact. On the following day, the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) honored ICAN's Beatrice Fihn at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. to highlight the nuclear ban movement’s historic progress toward disarmament. Negotiations will resume on June 15 at the United Nations to finalize the treaty. Stay tuned to PSR for news of developments.

Perhaps showing the film that was made when Japan suffered this fate and how it effected generations to come will help those in power what can happen if the bomb is not banned
