Today we bring you an interview with Tilman Ruff from International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) about the Nobel Peace Ride. The Nobel Peace Ride will take the Nobel Peace Prize medal won by ICAN all the way from the birthplace of ICAN in Naarm Melbourne departing Sunday 2nd September, to Canberra arriving 20th September . ICAN is working hard to gather signatures for the UN weapons ban treaty that they initiated. One significant missing ratification and signature is that of Australia, and ICAN hopes to remedy that.
We then speak with Toni Scott from Kimba, one of the towns being considered for the federal radioactive waste dump to get an important insight into the experience of those who have been thrust unwilling into a deeply flawed process.
