Tell Stephen Harper: Go to the UN, and support the abolition of nuclear weapons!
On 26 September 2013, the UN General Assembly will host a high-level meeting on nuclear disarmament. Heads of government as well as foreign ministers and other high-level officials will attend this summit to voice their commitment to achieving a world free of nuclear weapons.
Canada has traditionally been a strong proponent of nuclear disarmament. It’s time to renew our commitment to this issue and to engage constructively with our international partners to ensure that the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences of nuclear weapons are never again unleashed.
We call on the Canadian government to:
· Participate in the high-level meeting on 26 September 2013 at the highest possible level; and
· Highlight the humanitarian and environmental consequences of nuclear weapons and call for a treaty banning nuclear weapons.
More than two decades after the end of the Cold War, it’s past time to retire these relics of terror and pursue the peace and security of a world free of nuclear weapons!
Please sign the petition below and a letter will go to Stephen Harper and other Members of Parliament to tell them you support the abolition of nuclear weapons. You will receive an email from info@ vowpeace.org to confirm your signature.
