Day 282 — 2017 Nobel Peace Prize

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) group was announced as the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize winner in Oslo on Friday. The group began in Melbourne ten years ago and was recognised as drawing attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its groundbreaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition on such weapons. Member of the Board of ICAN in Australia and the President of Medical Practitioners Against War, Dr Margaret Beavis joined me on RTRFM.
