You can be forgiven for missing the fact that a British person collected the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10th in Oslo. For some reason it was not widely reported in the UK (full marks to the Argus for picking up this news story).
Rebecca’s SPEECH FOR ICAN AT TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION, NOBEL PEACE PRIZE | Oslo Central Station, 10 December 2017
“It’s wonderful to be in Oslo on this amazing day. On behalf of ICAN I want to say thank you to all of you, from Norway and so many different countries, for joining us today to celebrate and march together, taking the ban treaty to the streets and everyone.
We are happy that ICAN has been honoured with this Nobel Peace Prize because it will help us do more.
This International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons is not about a few individuals but about our global Movement that reawakened understanding of all the horrendous dangers and consequences of nuclear weapons.
