Canadian survivor of Hiroshima to join ICAN in accepting Nobel Peace Prize

Setsuko Thurlow , who survived the nuclear attack on Hiroshima, will join the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), when it accepts the Nobel Peace Prize next month.

The group, which is seeking a global ban on nuclear arms won the Nobel Peace Prize, was given the award by a Nobel Committee that cited the spread of weapons to North Korea and said the risk was growing of nuclear war.

Supporters described the award as a potential breakthrough for a global movement that has fought to ban nuclear arms from the day the first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in August 1945.

Thurlow, who is a Canadian citizen, said at a news conference Friday (October 27) that she has been trying to meet with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to talk about nuclear weapons, but she has not been successful so far.
