This year is an important anniversary for us all in the Peace movement as it is the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the world’s first atomic bomb. Sadly, our parliamentary representatives over these 75 years have not heeded the important message it gave to the World that use of nuclear weapons are a crime against humanity, are illogical and solve nothing, just create yet more serious issues. They cost us the earth in two meanings.
Once again it is our aim to remind the community we live in to think about the event and hope in turn they become active to help us rid the world of these suicidal weapons.
What’s louder than a Nuclear weapon detonation? Answer – The deafening silence of the apathy our humanity has for the prospect of nuclear annihilation!
