On January 22nd, the landmark Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons becomes international law. One hundred and thirty U.N. member nations have voted to make nuclear bombs illegal. To mark this momentous day, a great many peace groups around the world will be holding celebrations and protests.

We will be holding a street protest for one hour (precise location TBA), and then we will deliver the following petition to UA administrators:
