Chernobyl Related Deaths Top 900,000

Chernoby lMemorial.jpgAccording to a recent report issued by the New York Academy of Sciences, over 900,000 deaths are directly attributable to the 1986 explosions at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Yet, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty implicitly promotes the development of nuclear power to the extent that many nations party to that treaty have come to think of nuclear power as a guaranteed right. Whether nuclear power is an option or even a right doesn't negate the public health risks inherent in its development, risks that accrue disproportionately to women, and that are commensurate with those of living near a nuclear weapons complex, such as those located at Livermore or Los Alamos. As part of the Abolition Caucus, an informal group of international NGOs participating in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review process, WILPF says no to nuclear power. To find out why, read our joint statement distributed to conference delegates on May 20, 2010.

2010 Nuclear Proliferation Treaty Practicum

The Practicum, the NPT and the Future

 Bobbie Paul and Judi Loring
Bobbie Paul, left, with fellow WILPF member Judi Mohling in New York. Mohling is with Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center in Boulder, CO, and planned the Hibakusha events at schools in NYC during the NPT.


WILPF’s Practicum in Advocacy at the NPT Review, a one-week residential program that included faculty-led seminars and special activities, was modeled on WILPF's highly successful Practicum in Advocacy at the CSW. At the request of members, this Practicum was open to women of all ages and backgrounds. WILPF co-sponsored the Practicum with the Center for Women's Health and Human Rights, the Peace and Justice Studies Association and Women in International Security.

Bobbie Paul, a new WILPF member from Georgia who attended the Practicum said, “We actively pursued the peace process on one of the biggest international stages, accompanied by thousands of people from all over the world. Perhaps one of the most memorable experiences was marching for a nuclear weapons free world on Sunday May 2, with thousands of nuclear abolitionists, many of whom had traveled to NYC – even from as far as Japan.”

During the Practicum, Bobbie heard Japanese A-bomb survivors talk about their experiences first hand. “They told us, ‘We don’t hate the people who did this to us, we just hate the bomb.’ It was a sentiment we heard the Hibakusha -- Japanese A-bomb survivors – express frequently, including when they went to talk to 10th grade students at Martin Luther King High School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. These victims had their stories translated from Japanese into English in front of hundreds of students during the first week of the NPT, holding them in rapt attention and helping them to imagine the unthinkable horrors of an A-bomb blast.”
