UNFOLD ZERO encourages you to commemorate Human Rights Day today (December 10) by advancing the human right to freedom-from-the-threat-of-nuclear weapons.
We recommend two recent appeals on nuclear weapons and human rights to send to your parliamentarians and governments. Both of the appeals highlight the threat of nuclear weapons to current and future generations, and call on governments to undertake significant nuclear disarmament measures at the 2018 UN High-Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament.
Such measures could include non-nuclear states signing the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (today being highlighted by the Nobel Peace Award) if they have not already done so, and nuclear reliant states agreeing to no-first-use as a step towards comprehensive prohibition.
