In June 2012, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is hosting
the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development（Rio＋20）,
to mark the 20th anniversary of the Earth Summit held in 1992.
During the period between 16th June and 22nd June,
we are showing the World Hibakusha Exhibition (No More Hibakusha)
with OWABI (apologies) as part of the Future Territories,
a series of events, which run concurrently with the conference,
organised by citizens’ groups the world over.
We have made dove-shaped handmade cards using recycled milk cartons.
You, who have come to see our exhibition, can write your message of love.
The messages will be displayed at the World Hibakusha Exhibition (No More Hibakusha)
wherever it goes in the world. Your message will also be posted on our website
where it will be seen worldwide.
Doves were once used to carry messages for military purposes,
but now, they carry people’s messages of hope from all over the world and
fly freely across borders – conveying the hope that one day the world will be nuclear-free.
Exhibited photos of world hibakushas, showing the horrors of radiation, in Ooma Town,
where a new nuclear power plant was, and still is, being built.
Showed hibakusha photos at a citizens’ forum,
“Setagaya Energy Shift – Classroom for Our Future”, in Setagaya.

Took part in the first Global Conference for a Nuclear Free World held atPacifico Yokohama.
Seventy hibakusha photos were displayed during the conference which was attended by
11,000 people from all over the world.
The photos were viewed with great interest, appreciation and approval by many participants
“These photos speak to me directly about things that words cannot express”,and,
“Many more people should know the truth about hibakushas”.
The ‘Urgent’ World Hibakusha Exhibition Forum, the first showing of hibakusha photos
by the six photographers after a six-year gap, held at Meguro Persimmon Hall,
in response to the nuclear disaster in Fukushima.
The event also involved lectures and presentations about the adverse effects of
