Japan Gensuikyo

| No Comments

Japan Gensuikyo is a national anti-atom bomb, anti-nuclear organization that was founded in 1944. They do grassroots awareness and fundraising for vicitms of nuclear war, nuclear testing, and disasters like Chernobyl. They call these people hibakusha.

Yesterday, they began their annual march from Tokyo to Hiroshima. They take a rather long route--curving around the country to spread the word--with plans to arrive in Hiroshima on August 4th, just before the anniversary of the bombing and in time for the 2002 World Conference against A & H Bombs.
