A Kentucky activist heads to the Netherlands to give input on the destruction of chemical weapons in Syria.

Craig Williams, longtime citizen activist and director of the Kentucky Environmental Foundation’s Chemical Weapons Project joins a delegation that’s meeting in Europe this week to explore solutions to Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.  The group, which is meeting in the Netherlands, wanted Williams on board because he was instrumental in ushering a plan for destroying the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the Bluegrass Army Depot here in Kentucky. 

The delegation was convened by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and is a joint mission with the United Nations.  Once meetings come to a close, the group will give their recommendations on how to best dispose of Syria’s weapons.
