the nobel peace prize. archbishop desmond tutu for his nonviolent campaign against apartheid in south africa to martti ahtisaari for resolving conflicts in kosovo it proves that the path to peace on many but nothing threatens world peace more than the fifteen thousand nuclear weapons held by just nine countries and i can says that as long as they exist nuclear disaster is inevitable. the crisis in north korea means that the threat is greater than it has been in decades i can doesn't expect nuclear states to sign the u.n. treaty immediately but it hopes to stigmatize the weapons like landmines chemical and biological weapons making their use and thinkable their opponent a powerful but so are the people says i can course the economic impacts that individual people can have so we have a major campaign called don't bank on the bomb and we're encouraging people to call
