Europeans Reject US Nuclear Weapons on Own Soil – New Poll


July 2018 (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons)* — On the first anniversary of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), new YouGov polling commissioned by the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) has found an overwhelming rejection of nuclear weapons.

The poll was conducted in the four EU countries that host US nuclear weapons: Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Italy.

In each country, an overwhelming majority of people surveyed were in favour of removing the weapons from their soil, and for their countries to sign the Treaty that bans them outright.

What did the survey find?

1. At least twice as many people are in favour of removing the weapons than keeping them.

2. At least four times as many people are in favour of their country signing the TPNW than not signing the TPNW.

3. At least four times as many people are against companies in their country investing in nuclear weapons activities than in favour of it.

4. A strong majority of people are against NATO buying new fighter jets that are able to carry both nuclear weapons and conventional weapons.
