Delàs, in collaboration with the International Peace Bureau and Gensuikyo, is honored to organise, in the presence of  survivors of Hiroshima, an act commemorating the 70th anniversary of this nuclear bombing, and to call for peace and the nuclear disarmament. As an activity organized in the frame of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons (ICAN), the goal is to raise public awareness of the dangers that nuclear weapons represent for humanity, and increase support for a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons.
