NGO PRESENTATIONS TO THE NPT PREPCOM

Representatives from Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) participating in the NPT PrepCom, collectively assemble a set of statements on a range of issues the NGOs wish to introduce to the debate, discussion and record of the review process of the NPT. Usually, one afternoon session during the NPT PrepComs (and Review Conferences) is dedicated to NGOs making a series of presentation, to the governmental delegates to the PrepCom, raising these concerns, recommendation and expertise.

Here are clips from two of the presentations from 2004:

                     


The Mayor of Hiroshima, Tadatoshi Akiba, made a presentation at the 2004 NPT PrepCom meeting. His powerful remarks reminded the PrepCom, and the world, of the unforgotten legacy of the atomic bombs dropped nearly 60 years ago. --

John Loretz, IPPNW Program Director (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) speaking at the 2004 NPT PrepCom NGO Presentations. His talk was abbreviated due to time constraints, and yet his impromptu remarks summarized our global situation succinctly. Go to the Reaching Critical Will website for complete transcript of his remarks. -- quicktime | windows media
