Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Right Livelihood Laureate Alyn Ware On The Global Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament

Web ExclusiveApril 14, 2011
Media Options

Alyn Ware received the Right Livelihood Award in 2009 for leading initiatives in peace education and nuclear abolition in his native New Zealand and around the world for the past twenty-five years. Democracy Now! met up with him at the 2010 Right Livelihood Awards in Bonn, Germany.

Alyn Ware was active in the campaign to prohibit nuclear weapons in New Zealand, before serving as the World Court Project U.N. Coordinator which achieved a historic ruling from the World Court on the illegality of nuclear weapons. Ware has led efforts to implement the World Court’s decision, including drafting resolutions adopted by the U.N.. He brought together a group of experts to prepare a draft treaty on nuclear abolition which is now being promoted by the U.N. Secretary General, and engaged parliamentarians around the world through Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament.
