Manchester City support’s for the U.N Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty is welcomed by Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA)

NFLA 28th Nov 2018 , The Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) welcomes the unanimous decision
made today by Manchester City Council to formally support the International
Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). NFLA calls on the UK
Government to engage with the majority will of United Nations (UN) member
states by engaging in a process they have currently boycotted. The TPNW was
agreed at the UN by 122 countries (including the Republic of Ireland) in
July 2017 and is currently being ratified, a process that is expected to
conclude in 2019. The Treaty is a concerted attempt to move forward with
multilateral nuclear disarmament, but it has been opposed at every stage by
the nuclear weapon states, including the United Kingdom. NATO members, and
states like Australia and Japan who are linked to American security
policies, have also opposed this process.
