The Petition

This petition was presented to the NPT Review Conference on 7 May 2010, and also to the UK Prime Minister before the end of the NPTConference. Further signatures will be presented to Downing Street in support of the NATO Strategic Concept Review

We the undersigned believe that the use or threat of use of weapons of mass destruction is immoral.   

We acknowledge the spread and increasing accessibility of nuclear technology and the threat that this poses to our security.  We are encouraged by the prospect of significant reductions in US and Russian nuclear arsenals.  

We call on nuclear weapons states to refrain from updating their nuclear arsenals and remind them of their "unequivocal undertaking" to meet their obligations to eliminate all nuclear weapons under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

We owe it to our children and our grandchildren to seize the opportunity to put in place a new legally binding verifiable and universal agreement to eliminate all nuclear weapons. 

Now is the time.
