Exhibition on Nuclear Disarmament to open in Dunedin as a part of 68th Hiroshima day commemorations
The National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (NCPACS) will host the opening of an antinuclear exhibition “Everything You Treasure: For a World Free from Nuclear Weapons” from August 5 (Mon) to 9 (Fri) at the Otago University Library LINK.
The exhibition, jointly created by Soka Gakkai International (SGI) and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), was first launched at the 20th World Congress of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) in Hiroshima in 2012. The exhibition has since been shown in Bahrain and later at the UN Office at Geneva, during the Second Preparatory Committee (PrepCom) for the 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference in April of this year.
The new exhibition consists of 40 panels covering nuclear weapons issues from 12 perspectives: humanitarian, environmental, medical, economic, human rights, energy, scientific, political, spiritual, gender, generational and security. Peter Mauer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) stated, “it is astounding that states had never come together to address the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, including their long-term health and climate effects.”
