Atomic bomb survivor to jointly accept Nobel Peace Prize on ICAN’s behalf

ICAN campaigners around the world will take part in celebrations on 10 December and renew their appeal for governments to sign and ratify this crucial new international accord without delay.

An 85-year-old survivor of the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima will jointly accept this year’s Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

Setsuko Thurlow, who was 13 years old when the United States attacked her city, will receive the award together with ICAN’s executive director, Beatrice Fihn, at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo on 10 December.

Thurlow has been a leading figure in ICAN since its launch in 2007. She played a pivotal role in the United Nations negotiations that led to the adoption of the landmark treaty outlawing nuclear weapons in July.

For more than seven decades, she has campaigned against the bomb. Her powerful speeches at diplomatic conferences and in classrooms have inspired countless individuals around the world to take action for disarmament.

Two other survivors of the atomic bombings – Terumi Tanaka from Nagasaki and Toshiki Fujimori from Hiroshima, who are both members of Nihon Hidankyo – will also attend the prize ceremony, as will survivors of nuclear testing.

Fihn, who is based in Geneva, has worked in the area of disarmament for the past decade, including with the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. She has a law degree from the University of London.

Hiroshima, August 1945

“Survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are living witnesses to the horror of nuclear war. They have played a central role in ICAN. World leaders must heed their call for a nuclear-weapon-free future.”

Thurlow and Fihn will jointly deliver the Nobel lecture and receive the medallion and diploma from the Norwegian Nobel committee. They will do so as representatives of ICAN, this year’s Nobel peace laureate.

ICAN was awarded the prize “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons”.

ICAN is a diverse coalition of 468 non-governmental organizations in 101 countries promoting adherence to and implementation of the United Nations nuclear weapon ban treaty.

This Wednesday: Learn to Meditate

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances. (http://www.how-to-meditate.org)

Five AmeriCorps volunteers recently descended on our wonderful but chaotic peace museum library and digital collection and completely reorganized it for us!  Guided by Charlotte Chinn of the Ohio Reading Corps, the group did a wonderful job of cataloging scores of new books and creating some much-needed order across the library.

This included organizing the recent years' editions of winners and nominees of the Dayton Peace Literacy Awards.  The books are now in order, making each one easy to locate on the shelves for anyone in the community who wishes to do research or borrow from our growing collection.

Ted Studebaker


Ted Studebaker


Click on the photo below to watch the video

This is the ABC News account of the story of Ted Studebaker, just after he was killed in Viet Nam in 1971. It was resurrected from partial film elements found in both the Brethren Historical Library and Archives in Elgin, IL and the Archives at Manchester College, North Manchester, IN and re-edited to replicate the original broadcast.

Ted Studebaker

Ted Studebaker (born September 29, 1945, outside of Dayton, Ohio) was a pacifist and conscientious objector who served as an agricultural worker during the Vietnam War and was executed by North Vietnam in 1971.

Studebaker was the 7th child of eight born on a farm in the small town of West Milton, Ohio. He was a devout member of the Church of the Brethren, and also excelled in sports and played football in high school as well as in college where he attended the small liberal arts school Manchester College in Indiana. He then attended Florida State University for two years pursuing his graduate degree in social work before he left for Vietnam. He also had a great love for music and was a guitarist.

While in Vietnam he volunteered with the Vietnam Christian service where he volunteered for two years working with a Montagnard hill tribe where he helped them with agricultural production. 

He was killed on April 26, 1971 by North Vietnamese when they first attacked the volunteers’ house with rockets and then invaded. The soldiers did not know who Studebaker was, they merely saw him as an American and therefore a threat and so he was executed. The lives of his wife and other volunteers were spared.

United Nations Grants Special Status

On April 27th, Cities of Peace, Inc., was granted Special Consultative Status with the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).   

International Cities of Peace will now have two permanent passes to U.N. headquarters and be able to participate on committees and deliver oral statements and submit written statements to be circulated by the Secretary-General's office.

Thanks to the thousands of volunteers, city leaders, and peacemakers who have made this possible. It's great news and a tipping point to greater opportunities.
