ICAN ride Melb to Canberra 20 September 2018 for Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons – rally 11am Thursday 20 Sept.

19 Sep 6:30 PM - 20 Sep 4:00 PM AEST

THIS September, ICAN is organising a bike ride, cycling from Melbourne to Canberra to carry the Nobel Peace Prize and the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to Parliament House. The demand is clear: Australia must sign and ratify the nuclear weapon ban treaty! With the national Labor conference and a federal election looming, the time is right to get active and loud.
There was a public send-off in Melbourne on Sunday 2nd September – Welcome events –
DINNER AT THE FOOD COOP, KINGSLEY ST. ACTON, WED 19 SEPTEMBER AT 6.30PM.
WELCOME THE CYCLISTS ON THURSDAY 20 SEPTEMBER AT THE PEACE BELL IN NARA PEACE PARK (on the lake opposite the National Museum) AND JOIN THEM FOR A CYCLE AROUND THE LAKE – JUST AROUND THE 2 BRIDGES.
RALLY 11AM AT THE PEACE BELL AND MARCH TO PARLIAMENT HOUSE
RALLY AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE, 12 NOON, THURSDAY 20 SEPTEMBER.
We need your support to maximise public, political and media attention on this issue. While Australia hasn’t yet signed on to the treaty, we believe it’s inevitable. Let’s make it happen.

IPAN is a supporter of the ICAN campaigns
