Today PAX handed over 45.608 signatures for the national No Nukes campaign at Dutch Parliament in The Hague. We would like thank everyone who have supported us throughout the campaign!

The next step is a debate in parliament about our official proposal: ‘Ban nuclear weapons in the Netherlands‘. Now it is up to parliament to decide when the debate will take place.

About the Author

Selma supports all the disarmament work at PAX with a special emphasis on the No Nukes team. In 2014 she and other PAX disarmament campaigners launched a public campaign in the Netherlands to initiate the creation of national legislation to outlaw nuclear weapons: One of the result of this national campaign is that a vast majority of the House wants the Netherlands to start working internationally for a nuclear weapons ban.
