UK’s empty chair, part 2

Today, the 15th of June 2017 the final round of United Nations-mandated negotiations on a treaty prohibiting the development, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons, began. It is not a surprise that the British government has refused to participate at the discussions and we have, yet again, a disappointing empty seat.

Read  their full briefing here.

Meanwhile, hundreds of countries are living up to their values and have gathered at the UN in New York to negotiate the treaty. Scottish MPs and MSPs are sending us video statements to show their support for a global ban on nuclear weapons.

While some of the official chairs are empty, the civil society section does not seem to have enough seats to accommodate us all.
