When you write your MP or MSP, here is an easy ask. Ahead of the negotiations for the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) enlisted support from 856 parliamentarians in 42 countries.
Now ICAN is seeking parliamentarians’ support the new Parliamentary Pledge – a commitment to work for the signature and ratification of the treaty.
This is an ideal tool for us in Scotland to exert pressure on the UK government – who failed to participate in the negotiations – and to highlight the wall-to-wall opposition to nuclear weapons in Scotland.
Parliamentarians at Westminster or Holyrood can add their names to the Pledge by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or using the form on the link below. ICAN’s website will let the world see what Scottish Parliamentarians think.
The form is here:
It’s just over a month until the treaty opens for signature. Let’s work hard to have a large number of parliamentarians on board by then.
