Irish CND policy paper now available
Irish CND's new policy paper on Irish financing of companies involved in the nuclear weapons industry, Ireland, Irish finance and the Nuclear Weapons Industry, was launched to mark UN International Day of Peace on September 21, and has been widely welcomed internationally by other organisations campaigning for the abolition of nuclear weapons. The report calls for changes in legislation to prohibit investment by Irish state bodies (such as the National Pensions Reserve Fund) in companies involved in the nuclear weapons industry. In tandem with this, Eoghan Murphy TD has introduced a Private Members Bill which would give effect to several of the reports key recommendations, The Nuclear Weapons (Prohibition of Investments) Bill 2012.
