Peace Boat arrives in Sydney

Today, the Peace Boat arrived in Sydney, bringing with it survivors of the Nagasaki atomic bomb, the Fukushima nuclear power station disaster and the British atomic tests on the APY lands in South Australia.

A seminar, organised by last year's Nobel Peace Prize winners, ICAN, was held today at Redfern Community Centre, featuring stories from the survivors, and performances by artists from Gomeroi Country (NW NSW), and Okinawa (Southern Japan).

Here Gomeroi dancers, Nhambaa Dalaay, pose with the Japanese nuclear survivors, Hanako Hasegawa,  Kenichi Hasegawa and Terumi Tanaka, along side Peace Boat representative Akira Kawasaki. 

More photos to come.
