70 Years of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
On August 6 and 9 70 years will have passed on the nuclear bombing against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States of America. On this occasion the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) recalls the barbaric act committed against defenceless populations at a time when the Japanese empire was already military defeated on land in Asian front and on the Pacific air and sea fronts. Japan had already started the process of surrendering to the Allied Forces.
