Description

There are important international moves taking place which could lead to an international ban on nuclear weapons. Janet Fenton (Secretary of Scottish CND) has been attending and speaking at the UN Open Ended Working Group on nuclear disarmament in Geneva.

There will be an opportunity to hear Janet describe these developments at a meeting in the Scottish CND office, 77 Southpark Avenue, Glasgow G12 8LE (enter via Wellington Church car park) at 7 pm on Thursday 12 May. (map)

Following earlier conferences on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, 127 nations are now signed up to a pledge to fill the legal gap for the prohibition and elimination of nuclear weapons. The Geneva meeting looked at how to take forward this initiative. Delegates from around the world were particularly interested in the unique role that Scotland can play. Detailed reports are available from Reaching Critical Will

The meeting will also hear from David Mackenzie on a recent visit to meet anti-nuclear activists in Japan.
