Recently, several members of GSI’s leadership have been in the media:
Middle Powers Initiative Chairman Emeritus Douglas Roche, O.C., published an op/ed in Embassy magazine calling on Canada and other middle powers to support US President Barack Obama’s call for a nuclear weapons-free world.
GSI President Jonathan Granoff published “Nuclear Weapons Free: Let’s Support President Obama,” in the Huffington Post.
MPI International Steering Committee Hiromichi Umebayashi published an important op/ed in the Japan Times, “Japan Ready for ‘No Nukes’,” dismissing as “nonsense” “the argument that Japan will go nuclear if Washington reduces the number and missions of U.S. nuclear forces”.
We extend our most heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Alyn Ware, PNND Global Coordinator, who will be receiving a Distinguished Alumni Award from his alma mater in New Zealand.
