Nihon Hidankyo and Mayors of Peace nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace PrizePosted: 2011/04/12
In her letter of nomination to the Nobel Committee, Maguire said:
“I believe both organizations have fulfilled the wish of Alfred Nobel to work for peace and disarmament and awarding the prize jointly to them would recognize the great sacrifice of especially the Hibabushas and give support and encouragement to all working on one of the greatest challenges to humanity – to rid the world of all nuclear weapons and build peace amongst the human family.”
IFLAC supports Nihon Hidankyo, which is not only an atomic victim’s organization, but also a large peacemaker’s organization in Japan. We at IFLAC send our very best wishes of health and safety to the members of this noble organization, may Japan not suffer from any more nuclear danger! The brave Japanese people have suffered enough.
