10 December 2017, Oslo, Norway: In the evening of 10 December some 4,000 people from around the world gathered in central Oslo for a torch light march for peace. The event took place after the Nobel Peace Prize award 2017, awarded to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), for "its 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". Among the crowd were more than 20 "Hibakusha", survivors of the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as a range of activists, faith-based organizations and others who work or support work for peace, in one or another way. Here, Hayley Ramsay-Jones from Soka Gakkai International. Soka Gakkai is a worldwide Buddhist network which promotes peace, culture and education through personal transformation and social contribution. It is a Japanese religious movement founded in 1930.
