Efforts for Nuclear Abolition
About This Project
ANT-Hiroshima travels to various places in and out of Japan, holding A-bomb exhibitions and lectures to communicate the true conditions of the atomic bombings and the A-bomb survivors. With efforts to convey this information through documentary films, a blog, social media, and other avenues, we seek to foster a network of people to help advance a nuclear-free world. ANT-Hiroshima is also an active supporter of NGOs leading the “Hibakusha Appeal,” an international petition begun by A-bomb survivors to promote a treaty that would ban and abolish nuclear weapons.
How This Work Began
ANT-Hiroshima believes its mission, as an NGO in Hiroshima, must involve taking action to advance the nuclear-weapon-free world that the A-bomb survivors have long strived to realize. This anti-nuclear aim has been a core component of our mission since the organization was founded about 30 years ago, and we have devoted ourselves to grassroots efforts for peace with this greater goal in mind.
