Pressenza interviewed Susi Snyder at IPB World Congress in Berlin “Disarm! For a climate of Peace”.

According to Susi Snyder we are reaching the point where all nuclear weapons will be declared illegal. Let’s hope that in 2017 we will have this treaty, because it will be a very big change. Thanks to strong campaigning, already more than 50 banks have decided not to invest in nuclear weapons manufacturers – in order not to connect their names with nuclear weapons, because we all know they are bad. We need to advance in building this culture of peace and nonviolence because that is the only way we will all win.
