Ban The Bomb - We've Done It!
Marian Pallister, Justice & Peace vice chair and chair of Pax Christi Scotland, reflects on the ratification of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty.
Late on October 24, the news broke that a 50th nation had ratified
the 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). Those of
us involved with organisations such as Justice and Peace Scotland and
Pax Christi Scotland were poised to disseminate the news about this
significant step in the campaign to create a nuclear free world -
because with the 50th ratification, nuclear weapons became illegal.
