Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
Dear fellow humanitarian,
Nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel existentially threatens the world but the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) will shortly further place this serial war criminal rogue state and its supporters outside International Law and subject to global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).
Stephen Hawking: “We see great peril if governments and societies do not take action now to render nuclear weapons obsolete and to prevent further climate change”. The 24 October ratification by a 50th state, Honduras, of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) means that it will take effect from 22 January 2021, from which time the 9 nuclear terrorist states and 32 complicit states will be grossly violating International Law.
Key TPNW prohibitions are to: “(a). Develop, test, produce, manufacture, otherwise acquire, possess or stockpile nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices… (e). Assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Treaty”.
Estimates of stored nuclear weapons are as follows together with the population of each country: US (5,800-6,185; 331.6 million), Russia (6,372-6,490; 145.0 million), China (300-320; 1,439.3 million), France (290; 65.3 million), UK (200-215; 68.0 million), Pakistan (160; 222.3 million), India (150; 1,384.4 million), Apartheid Israel (90; Jewish Israeli population 6.7 million but ruling Palestine, total population 14.1 million), and North Korea (30-40; 25.8 million).
The relative moral depravity of the nuclear terrorist states is given by the ratio of “number of nuclear weapons” to “population in millions” : Russia (44.4), US (18.1), Apartheid Israel Jewish population (13.4), France (4.4), UK (3.1), North Korea (1.4), Pakistan (0.7), China (0.2), and India (0.1).
Under the extreme right-wing, serial war criminal and climate criminal Coalition, Australia opposes the TPNW, is deeply complicit in US and UK nuclear terrorism, is second only to America as a fervent supporter of nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel, is among world leaders in 16 areas of climate criminality, and faces global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). The Labor Opposition and the Greens support ratification of the TPNW.
