2015 Japan National Peace March – International Youth Relay

The Japan Council Against A&H Bombs (Gensuikyo) announced online this year’s line up for the International Youth Relay component of the Japan National Peace March!

As this year marks the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, one of the themes of the International Youth Relay March is ‘NO NUKES Challenge 70’.

Together with Japanese youth marchers, young people from other countries will carry the campaign for a nuclear weapons free world as the Peace March weaves through all prefectures across Japan.

The line up of International Youth Marchers to date are as follows:
