Seminar: Forbud mot atomvåpen og Fukushima-ulykken

Torsdag 26. juni inviterer Norges Fredslag, Nei til Atomvåpen og den japanske organisasjonen “Peace Boat” til felles seminar om forbud mot atomvåpen og om Fukushima-ulykken.

Et cruiseskip med japanske fredsaktivister ankommer Oslo og besøker Fredshuset. Samme dag legger også SV fram et forslag til grunnlovsendring som vil forby introduksjon, produksjon, utplassering og bruk av atomvåpen i Norge.

Hallgeir Langeland fra SV vil presentere forslaget. Et overordnet tema vil være å utveksle norske og japanske erfaringer og tilnærminger til hvordan man kan bidra til en atomvåpenfri verden.

Seminaret vil bli holdt på engelsk, inkludert enkel lunsj. Velkommen!
