Celebrating the TPNW

‘Travelling’ signs and peace cranes mark 'entry into force' of UN nuclear weapons ban

Lotte Reimer writes: As congregating to sing or otherwise celebrate together was impossible due to the lockdown, a great deal of thought and innovation went into how to celebrate the ‘entry into force’ of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 22 January. ‘Travelling’ signs and peace cranes were photographed in various places across Wales (including the Welsh senedd/parliament – see below) and pictures were posted on social media. There was also an online CND Cymru concert fronted by the legendary folksinger and activist Frankie Armstrong.
