A fantastic display of historic anti-nuclear posters was set up at the Wellington School of Architecture on July 26 to celebrate 30 years of Nuclear Weapon-free NZ. The exhibition was sponsored by the United Nations Association of NZ, Victoria University School of Architecture and the Peace and Disarmament Education Trust (PADET).
The Peace Poster Collection is the legacy to New Zealanders from Larry Ross, Secretary/Founder for the New Zealand Nuclear free zone committee and peacemaking association 1981 – 2007.
His daughter Laurie Ross, peacemaker and anti-nuclear activist working with the Peace Foundation, presented the exhibition to the public. Her speech was followed by an address from keynote speaker Dr Rod Alley, from New Zealand National Consultative Committee on Disarmament, on the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
