Host Margaret Harrington reads the letter to supporters from the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) on their winning the Nobel Peace Prize. The nine nations who have nuclear weapons have not signed the treaty to abolish nuclear weapons. They are the United States, China, Russia, Great Britain, France, India, Israel, Pakistan, and North Korea. ICAN modeled their campaign on the International Campaign to Ban Landmines which with its American Coordinator, Jody Williams, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. Jody Williams speaks in Vermont at the first statewide Nuclear Disarmament Day observed on August 6th, the day the United States bombed Hiroshima.
