Beatrice Fihn of the Nobel-Winning ICAN: We Need to Dismantle & Disarm the World’s Nuclear Arms

Democracy Now!

Published on Oct 10, 2018 – As the U.S. continues negotiations on the Korean Peninsula, we speak with Beatrice Fihn, executive director of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize-winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, about the fight to disarm the world. In a sweeping conversation, Fihn discusses Trump withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and who profits from the development of nuclear weapons. “[Nuclear weapons] are meant to mass murder civilians,” Fihn says. “As long as nuclear weapons exist, the risk will always be there.”
