The aim of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) is to prohibit nuclear explosions by everyone, everywhere, always. The Treaty dates back to 1996, but as long as it has not entered into force the threat of nuclear testing remains. The importance of the Treaty and its verification system is a compelling reason for people to raise their voices and be heard around the world.
This short documentary made by the Comprehensive Test-Ban Treaty organization illustrates the importance of the CTBT and highlights the global verification system that exists today and its robust benefits.
