Nobel ☮Peace Prize 2017 Goes to '🌐International Campaign to 🚫Abolish☢ Nuclear Weapons

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons has been awarded the 2107 Nobel Peace prize.

The chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Berit Reiss-Andersen, said the award had been made in recognition of the group’s work “to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons”.

In Alfred Nobel's words, the peace prize is awarded to: "... the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."
