History is being made at the United Nations. The majority of governments, together with international organisations and civil society groups including WILPF, are gathering to start negotiations of a treaty banning nuclear weapons.
It took incredible amounts of determination, creativity, and courage to get here. We have seen decades of activism against the bomb. Endless engagement with nuclear-armed states. The collection of baby teeth. Millions of people marching in the streets. Commitments made and broken. Pleas from survivors of nuclear weapons use and testing. Many, many conversations in various UN forums. Countless UN resolutions. Multiple joint statements.
