Householders’ Options to Protect the Environment (HOPE) Inc. (Australia) has initiated a national e: petition calling on the Australian Federal Government to sign the United Nations (UN) Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).
HOPE, a member group of International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICANw) http://www.icanw.org/ fully supports the need to protect Australia, our residents and our environment from the threat of nuclear attacks
“The almost 15,000 nuclear weapons represent an overwhelming threat to human and environmental health. They have the capacity to cause death and suffering on an unprecedented scale, with widespread destruction of healthcare and other infrastructure and the natural environment. In the event of their use again, very little humanitarian response would be available to assist any survivors.
Therefore, nuclear weapons must never be used again. The only way to ensure this is to abolish them.”

WE DON’T WANT ANOTHER INTENTIONAL (OR ACCIDENTAL) CATASTROPHIC EPISODE LIKE THE BOMBING's OF HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI (6 and 9 August 1945, respectively)!!!
We are asking Australian citizens to sign our e: petition which calls on the Australian Federal Government to sign the United Nations (UN) Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).
