In one of its final acts of 2016, the United Nations General Assembly adopted with overwhelming support a landmark resolution to begin negotiations on a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons. This historic decision heralds an end to two decades of paralysis in multilateral nuclear disarmament efforts.

Throughout June and July of 2017, governments will negotiate the ban on nuclear weapons at the United Nations. WILPF and our coalition are hitting the streets to celebrate and also demand a good treaty that prohibits these weapons of mass destruction once and for all!

The Women’s March Ban the Bomb is a women-led initiative building on the momentum of movements at the forefront of the resistance, including the Women’s March on Washington. It will bring together people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, races, abilities, nationalities, cultures, faiths, political affiliations and backgrounds to march and rally at 12 PM -4 PM Saturday, June 17, 2017 in New York City!

    I personally think that this is one of the dumbest movements I’ve ever read about there is no way in hell that any government of any country would renounce the use of nuclear weapons. Not only is the possession of nuclear weapons keeping the United States and many other countries safe but without the development of nuclear weapons we would not have radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer and many other innovations that were the result of developing nuclear weapons. Mutually assured destruction keeps us safe in this world and affords us many of the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy on a day to day basis.
