AUSTRALIANS WANT PEACE, NOT NUCLEAR WAR
In 2017, it is unthinkable that the Australian Government would commit Australian people to a potential nuclear conflict between the US and North Korea. The horrors of nuclear war are unspeakable, but unfortunately not unimaginable.
72 years have passed since the devastation of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, but an end to nuclear weapons has not yet been realised. The Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty offers new hope and there are so many reasons why Foreign Minister Julie Bishop should sign - everything we know and love in this world is at risk.
In the past, Australia has signed treaties to ban landmines, cluster munitions, biological and chemical weapons. These treaties have gone a long way towards putting an end to these inhuman weapons, and we can do it again with nuclear weapons. There are currently 14,500 nuclear weapons in the world and it only takes one to unleash a humanitarian catastrophe.
