In symbolic move against nuclear weapons, students at Soka University of America have figured out how to fly 1,000 paper cranes to Japan.

Members of the Student Movement for Nuclear Disarmament club on campus canvassed their peers to contribute to the project by passing out origami packets and encouraging students to drop off their finished work at collection bins scattered around campus, said Josie Parkhouse, 22, club president and a senior concentrating on international studies.
