TPNW news

News in Brief

In October, a new Labour government committed Norway to attending the first meeting of the signatories (‘states parties’) to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), 22 – 24 March in Vienna.

Norway, not a signatory, will be attending as an observer, the first NATO country to do so.

On 22 January, one year after the 2017 TPNW came ‘into force’, CND will be launching a campaign to press the UK government to also attend the Vienna meeting as an observer.

Leeds CND is raising funds for a plaque to put on a tree planted in Park Square last January (by Leeds city council) in support of the TPNW.
