Description

Stirling CND invite you to attend a meeting on the evening of Tuesday 3rd March 2020 at 7:00pm at the Mayfield Centre, Stirling.

At Scottish CND the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons working group are progressing their campaign activities with one focus being to engage more with Scottish cities and especially iconic one like Stirling. Stirling CND are inviting you to attend a meeting on the evening of Tuesday 3rd March 2020 at 7:00pm at the Mayfield Centre, Stirling to talk about the TPNW agenda in general and the Cities Appeal in particular. Our Guest speakers will be David Mackenzie and Janet Fenton of Scottish CND's TPNW Working Group who are active in an international forum associated with ICAN. 

This year, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) gets closer to 'entry into force', that is the point at which it will become binding on those who join. For that to happen we only 15 of the states who have already signed to complete ratification by putting it through their national legislation. All Greens, SNP and a good number of Scottish Labour Parliamentarians have signed a pledge to support the TPNW. The unique opportunity for our parliamentarian will arise because the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is due for Review in New York in early May. 

Stirling CND through engagement with its elected representatives at a local and national level wishes to play its part in progressing this work. I hope you can join us at this meeting.
