Seventy two years have passed since the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) took effect 47 years ago, yet the five NPT nuclear weapons states have not taken serious action on their treaty commitments to nuclear disarmament. In the meantime, four more states have acquired nuclear weapons and the risks of their use have only increased over time. To fill this legal and moral gap, the vast majority of non-nuclear states, under the auspices of the United Nations, adopted a new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on July 7. The nine nuclear-armed states and their close allies boycotted the talks; it’s now up to us to convince them to comply with the ban treaty and eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all.
