Write to your represenatives to sign the pledge

As you will be aware, there is a new UN Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) signed by more than 50 member states which will soon be coming into force. Parliamentarians across the world played a major role in realising the TPNW through their actions in the campaign. Now we are seeking their help to promote the signature and ratification of the treaty by all nations. The Parliamentary Pledge is a commitment by parliamentarians around the world to work for their government to join the treaty.

Given the position of the Scottish Parliament in opposing nuclear weapons, this is a very important way in which they can put pressure on the UK Government.

You can see if your parliamentarians have signed here.

If they have not, please ask your MSPs and MPs to sign it.

Send them a letter (model below) and follow up with a phone call to their office. If you are unsure who your representatives are, this website might be of help https://www.writetothem.com.
