Now is the Time
This afternoon we went to No 10 Downing Street to deliver a petition encouraging our Government to do all in its power to support the Non-Proliferation Treaty process currently under review at a Conference meeting in New York. An ecumenical campaign (nine UK Churches) entitled Now is the Time calls on the British Government to make a commitment to achieving an agreed international timetable leading to a world free of nuclear weapons.
Pictured below, just before handing the petition over, are (right to left): the Revd Pat Took (President Elect of the Baptist Union of Great Britain), David Bradwell (Associate Secretary, Church and Society Council of the Church of Scotland), the Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell (Bishop of Reading), me, John Cooper (Joint Public Issues Team) and Susan Seymour (Clerk to the Meeting of Sufferings, Quaker).
