68TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BOMBING OF HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI:
A CALL TO ABOLISH ALL NUCLEAR WEAPONS!
Statement of the World Peace Council
Sixty-eight year ago, on August 6th and 9th, 1945, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing more than 200,000 innocent civilians. The devastating consequences of this heinous act remain to this day. Almost seven decades later, the U.S. government still refuses to acknowledge the criminal nature of this act and to compensate its victims.
