Ban The Bomb Vigil
June 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us on Parliament House Lawn for our BAN THE BOMB VIGIL.
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.
Bring your Banners, your Families and Friends.
Show our Government you want an end to the threat of nuclear war.
Spread the word.
A draft Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has just been released. It was drawn up at the United Nations in New York at the end of March. As final discussions on the treaty begin in New York, across the world people will be marching on 17 June to show their support as well as their concern for the current failure of some nations, America in particular and Australia to work towards banning nuclear weapons. More than 130 other nations in the UN are now working towards this result. The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Tasmanian Branch is holding a Vigil, rather than a march, and we ask you to join with us for the hour.
