Protect Europe From Nuclear War - Sign the Candidates Pledge Now!

Scottish CND, as an ICAN partner, urges all candidates in Scotland to sign the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge. ICAN are the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for work around the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

The following is for candidates of the 2019 European elections to read and sign the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge.

The recent collapse of the INF Treaty, the US withdrawal from the Iran deal and a new nuclear arms race have made nuclear weapons one of the main security threats facing Europe.

In August, the INF Treaty will formally end, leaving the previously banned medium-range missiles (meant for obliterating European cities) legal for the US and Russia to deploy.

MEPs have a responsibility to protect citizens and make sure that weapons of mass destruction are not threatened, or used, to indiscriminately harm civilians. 

That's why, as a candidate for the European Parliament, you should sign the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge and signal to your voters that, if elected, you will take action to protect Europe against nuclear weapons and support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
