Nuclear Ban US is part of the TPNW campaign: “The campaign aims to put financial and public relations pressure on the companies that continue to profit from nuclear weapons, fossil fuels and the widening gap between rich and poor. The goal is to get the US and the other nuclear nations to sign, ratify and implement the Nuclear Ban Treaty and to use the financial, human and political resources this would release to pay for and implement a Green New Deal to save the planet from climate destruction.

“It’s immoral to profit from killing, even more so from preparing for nuclear annihilation

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) outlaws the use of nuclear weapons. But that is not what makes this treaty so important. Indeed, many would argue that any conceivable use of nuclear weapons would inevitably violate the fundamental principles of international humanitarian law and therefore the use of nuclear weapons was already illegal, long before the TPNW came along. What is illegal now, however, is not just the use of nuclear weapons, but everything to do with nuclear weapons.
