On October 28, 2015, Cree Youth from Mistissini will receive an award of ‘Special Recognition’ from the Nuclear-Free Future Award Foundation, for their work in banning uranium exploration, mining, and waste storage in their territory. The Nuclear-Free Future Award honors those who have worked to rid the world of uranium mining, nuclear power, and nuclear weapons and has been presented annually since 1998. The award is given by the Nuclear-Free Future Foundation, which was founded by Franz Moll to help facilitate a paradigm shift in attitudes towards nuclear activities.
The ceremony will be held in Washington DC on October 28 and will see the following awards given out:
Sister Megan Rice, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed (Resistance). In an act of passive civil disobedience, they gained entry to the Y-12 U.S. nuclear weapons complex in Oak Ridge, TN, were arrested on site, tried, imprisoned and released earlier this year.
Cornelia Hesse-Honegger (Education). Her work illustrates deformities and mutations in the insect realm caused by exposure to radiation from nuclear power accidents and radioactive releases.
The Honorable Tony deBrum (Solutions). As Foreign Secretary of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the site of 67 Cold War atomic tests, he has led efforts to get the nine nuclear weapons states to fulfill their disarmament duties under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Ambassador Alexander Kmentt (Special Recognition). As Austria’s Director of Arms Control, Nonproliferation and Disarmament at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he has been instrumental in Austria’s international leadership in demanding the nuclear weapons nations fully disarm their nuclear arsenals and for a global ban on nuclear weapons.
