IPPNW European Student Conference 2014
As part of the European Student Conference in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, IPPNW students organized a Target event on one of the city's busiest spots – Narinka Square. As part of a giant flashmob, hundreds of people watched the ICAN video on a large screen and simultaneously collapsed on the square at the detonation of the nuclear bomb in the film. Strangely enough, there was a weapons show by NATO troops on the same square and the soldiers were the prime discussion partners for the medical students and young doctors who swarmed through the city after the flashmob, informing people about the ongoing dangers of nuclear weapons – especially during these days of conflict between NATO and Russia over control the Ukraine.
