June 17: National Day of Action!

Australians will be marching, rallying, road-tripping and speaking out for a ban on Saturday, 17th June. Join an event in your city to protest Australia’s boycott of the ban negotiations!

Australia’s role in banning nuclear weapons

Australia should be at the forefront of global efforts to outlaw and eliminate nuclear weapons – not clinging to the misguided belief that these WMD protect us.

The impact of nuclear weapons on Australia

For many Australians, nuclear weapons are not a distant, abstract threat, but a lived reality. Learn more about the impact of nuclear testing and uranium mining.

The work of Pacific Islands to ban nuclear weapons

Disarmament has long been a top priority for the Pacific region, which has suffered greatly from decades of nuclear testing. This page documents the unique contributions from Pacific Island states and peoples.

Australia’s conflicted position on disarmament

The Australian government has resisted calls to ban nuclear weapons, as it claims that US nuclear weapons enhance Australia’s security.

Widespread support in Australia for a ban

More than 100 Australian parliamentarians and 800 recipients of the Order of Australia have signed ICAN appeals to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons.
