Peace Bureau Awards Prize to Dr Rosalie Bertell

The International Peace Bureau has awarded the annual Sean MacBride Peace Prize to Dr Rosalie Bertell. As CADU supporters will be aware, Dr Bertell has done invaluable scientific research on DU and its effects. The International Peace Bureau regards the threats to public health from nuclear and other military systems as of the highest significance. “We are honouring Dr Bertell for her lifelong engagement to the cause of peace and for her deep concern for the well-being of peoples all over the planet. Hers is an outstanding contribution to human welfare and environmental awareness”, said Colin Archer, IPB Secretary-General. Dr Bertell has worked with and for the people of Bhopal, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and the Marshall Islands, to name just a few, as well as working on the issue of DU. Her many decades of path-breaking work in scientific research and public education have been an inspiration to peace workers across the continents. She is President and founder of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health (IICPH), a Canada-based non-profit organization created to institutionalize her growing concern for human survival. She is also Editor in Chief of International Perspectives in Public Health, a journal dedicated to publishing high-quality research on pollution and public health. Dr. Bertell is the author of NO IMMEDIATE DANGER? Prognosis for a Radioactive Earth (1985); CHERNOBYL; The Environmental, Health and Human Rights Implications (1996); and PLANET EARTH: The Latest Weapon of War (September 2000).
