Torchlight Procession

With torchlights in hand, families pay tribute to the Agency. The torchlight procession is held every year to honour the Noble Peace Prize winner. Anne-Katrine Borander has come with her two daughters to show their support for a nuclear-weapon-free world. Three decades ago, Anne-Katrine went with her mother to protest the spread of nuclear weapons. Today, she does the same with her own daughters.

Along with their torchlights, the procession carries banners that say "No to Nuclear Weapons". They gather outside the laureates’ hotel. Cheers erupt as the laureates step on to the balcony, then wave to the crowd below.
