THE Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament launches a campaign today calling on the government to take diplomatic steps to save the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.
In Parliament Square, activists and MPs will demand action to rescue the flagship arms control agreement, 10 days before US President Donald Trump announces whether or not his country will withdraw from it.
The INF treaty was signed by the US and Russia in 1987 and led to the elimination of almost 3,000 nuclear weapons.
Tearing up the treaty could lead to US nuclear missiles returning to Britain and make nuclear war in Europe more likely, CND warned.
During the campaign launch, an actor will portray Mr Trump tearing up a giant copy of the INF treaty, while others playing Russian President Vladimir Putin and Theresa May stand idly by.
In attendence will be celebrity human rights campaigner Bianca Jagger, shadow minister for peace and disarmament Fabian Hamilton, Labour MPs Emma Dent Coad, Afzal Khan, Lloyd Russell-Moyle and Catherine West, Caroline Lucas and Baroness Jenny Jones from the Green Party, SNP MP Ronnie Cowan, CND’s Sara Medi Jones and the Stop the War Coalition’s Chris Nineham.
