On Saturday, 8th July, I went along to the North Gate at Faslane Naval Base to join a group celebrating the United Nations completing talks to agree a Ban on nuclear weapons.
The global treaty banning nuclear weapons was passed at a special meeting at the United Nations in New York on 7th July. This treaty was supported by 122 countries after many years of negotiations. Ongoing concerns have been raised by peace activists about the UK government not taking part in the talks. It is a huge disappointment that the UK has not participated in the process of agreeing the treaty.
