The UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons enjoys strong public support in Australia. An Ipsos poll in November 2018 showed that 79 per cent of Australians want the government to sign and ratify the treaty. Further, 83 per cent of Labor voters want a future Labor Government to join the ban. Cities and towns are echoing this call on behalf of their constituents by endorsing the ICAN Cities Appeal.
There is also significant political support: almost 200 Australian parliamentarians have signed ICAN’s parliamentary pledge to work for Australia to sign and ratify the treaty, including 78 per cent of all federal Labor parliamentarians. More than 20 unions and Trades and Labor Councils are putting their weight behind the campaign.
In 2016 close to 50 international lawyers in Australia wrote to the defence minister calling for an end to the policy of “extended nuclear deterrence”. Faith communities are often at the forefront of campaigns for social justice. More than 50 faith-based groups have endorsed an Interfaith Appeal calling on the Australian government to support and participate in the United Nations negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons in 2017. High-profile Australians are joining the chorus with a Celebrity Appeal in support of a ban.
Support of prominent Australians
More than 800 recipients of the Order of Australia signed an ICAN appeal to the prime minister to support a global ban on nuclear weapons. Signatories include writer Bryce Courtenay, gardener Jamie Durie, publisher Ita Buttrose, Olympian Liz Ellis and three former prime ministers. The appeal read:There is a growing consensus among world leaders on the urgent need to abolish nuclear weapons. The increasing risks of nuclear weapons proliferation and use in our region and beyond mean there has never been a more important time for Australian initiative and leadership in global efforts to free the world from nuclear weapons. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged governments to consider negotiating a convention to outlaw nuclear weapons and provide for their elimination within an agreed time frame. We, the undersigned recipients of the Order of Australia, call upon the Australian government to adopt a nuclear-weapon-free defence posture and to join other nations in working to achieve a comprehensive, verifiable treaty to abolish nuclear weapons.
