A plea to abolish Nuclear weapons06 August, 2010 by Chad
Today is the solemn 65th anniversary of the Hiroshima atomic bomb that obliterated a city and took the lives of more than 140,000 civilians and many more after. With another 80,000 lives lost at Nagasaki on August 9th 1945.
In the past, most saw the bombing as a reasonable way to end a war. But for the first time in history this year, the U.S. government has sent an envoy to attend the memorial service.
Regardless of where your political allegiance may lie, all can agree that no other country should ever have to face the horrors of that time again. A campaign called MillionPleas is holding a (sadly) futile movement for the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons. Still, it is a good idea to show your support by uploading a simple video of you saying “please”. Once the targeted number has been collected, the videos will be chained together to form the longest video petition ever.
