Condemning the use of Nuclear Weapons

IPPNW Turkish Affiliate

On the 6th of August 2007 at the anniversary of Hiroshima massacre Derman Boztok (general secretary and international councilor of NUSED) and his colleague Dr. Mehmet Kum (deputy health director and president of locally active NGO) declared to press the Igdir Appeal of NUSED and several local NGOs of Igdir Province (the most eastern province) condemning the use and development of nuclear weapons, reminding IPPNW´s ICAN efforts globally and pointing out the very imminent threat posed locally by the Metsamor nuclear plant at the Armenian border. The local and national press and TV covered the activity. Boztok thus initiated an IPPNW-ICAN activity through the opportunities of public health programs in the Eastern Anatolia recruiting new leaders to NUSED.
