Douglas' appearance coincided with the launch of a new exhibit of petitions calling on world leaders to ban the use of nuclear weapons as a result of Japan's nuclear crisis following the Asian disasters. He said, "Our hearts go out to the Japanese people as they deal with this catastrophe. The Japanese have a history of rebuilding their country after natural and man-made catastrophes."
