At the meeting outside the Guildhall commemorating of bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a statement will be read from Daniel Zeichner MP.
Daniel Zeichner MP said:
“Three quarters of a century on, we gather to commemorate the awful anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to remember all the victims of nuclear weapons.
Nuclear weapons have a devastating, indiscriminate humanitarian impact, and must never be used again.
The suffering of the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is taught in today’s history books.
But for as long as nuclear weapons exist and leaders threaten their use, that past hell could become our present.
The threat from nuclear weapons is greater now than it has been for decades. Global tensions are rising and international treaties are being violated. Trump and Putin have killed off the INF treaty.
So as we remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and say never again, now is the time to redouble our efforts for a nuclear free world.”
