“Human beings have to stop keeping nuclear arms”
NHK-TV in Japan aired a profile of Dr. Masao Tomonaga, IPPNW’s Regional Vice President for North Asia and Director of the Japanese Red Cross Hospital in Nagasaki. Dr. Tomonaga will join the Japanese delegation to the Second International Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons in Nayarit, Mexico on February 13 and 14. He will speak about the long term health effects of nuclear weapons during a session that will also include Co-President Ira Helfand, who will present the findings from IPPNW’s updated Nuclear Famine report.
“Now that the inhumane nature of nuclear weapons has been clarified,” Dr. Tomonaga says during the profile, “we should move ahead and abolish them.”
