FoR welcomes Nuclear Test Ban Treaty

The Fellowship of Reconciliation, which has been inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus to work and witness for peace for more than a century, is delighted that the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty has passed the final hurdle towards becoming international law. 

Director of the Fellowship, John Cooper, said: 

The 50th signature to the Nuclear Ban Treaty is a positive moment for the world. It is testament to the global network of campaigners, faith groups and organisations that worked hard to make a nuclear free dream a reality. 

The treaty will set the future direction of the world away from the sin of nuclear weapons and closer towards a world of peace.  Our celebrations, in this country, must be muted by recognition that we need to face our own nuclear history – including testing weapons in the pacific region –  as well as calling for a nuclear weapon free future.
