Oliver Stone will join World Conference against A & H Bombs

May 31, 2013
American film director Oliver Stone will participate in this year’s World Conference against A & H Bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

This was announced at the 72nd general meeting of the Organizing Committee of the World Conference held on May 30 in Tokyo.

Stone plans to have talks with A-bomb survivors (Hibakusha) at the Hiroshima Day Rally on August 6. He may also take part in a rally in Nagasaki on August 9.

In an appeal it adopted at the general meeting, the Organizing Committee calls for a major success at the annual international conference, which will be held from August 2 to 9 in the two A-bombed cities, in order to dramatically increase the movement for the abolition of nuclear weapons toward the 2015 NPT Review Conference.

Japan Conference against A & H Bombs (Japan Gensuikyo) representative director Taka Hiroshi stated that the two elections scheduled for this summer for the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly and the House of Councilors will be held at a time when the Japanese government’s stance toward the abolition of nuclear weapons is being called into question internationally. “This provides the opportunity for the anti-nuke movement in Japan to show Japanese citizens’ choice to the world,” he stressed.
