Take action during the TPNW Meeting of State Parties

TPNW = The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

In Vienna next week representatives from states from all over the world will gather for the First Meeting of States Parties of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons – you can read more about what this means for nuclear disarmament in this blog by Russell from Christian CND.

This is a great opportunity to put pressure on your bank or pension provider to move money out of nuclear weapons. Below you can find some new template tweets and some new graphics to share on social media. If you don’t have social media or would prefer to send a letter, you can find some templates here – why not include a paragraph about the conference happening in Vienna at the moment?
