[441] 2020-02-13 Agenda of NO-NUKES of Germany

Today I am going to take rest after carrying baggage to next shelter. I left Pirot and rode train for more than 2 hours. I arrived at shelter in front of Nis station, and took rest. Nis is a city with a population of 200,000.

I reviewed again the materials of ‘Agenda of No-nukes policy of Germany’ which were posted in August, 2019 edition of webzine. Executive staff Lee Seung Eun and I made the manuscript public in July, 2019.
