Today, as we consider the echoes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Global Zero members all over the world are doing something extraordinary.
In a global act of remembrance, they’re showing up, taking action and demanding world leaders take urgent steps to eliminate nuclear weapons. In 26 cities worldwide, these committed activists are raising awareness of the devastating humanitarian impact a nuclear weapon would have in their communities. Some are biking around the perimeter of a nuclear blast. Others are walking it. All are calling attention to the fact that, 70 years after nuclear weapons were unleashed on Japan, everything we hold dear is still at risk of unspeakable catastrophe. That we are always on the brink.
We’re also mobilizing on Twitter to demand urgent action to #EliminateNukes. If you aren’t able to participate in today’s demonstrations on the ground, I hope you’ll stand in solidarity online.
You can follow the action all day on Twitter at the hashtag #EliminateNukes.
Or you can see what your allies in the movement are up to on Facebook by searching for #EliminateNukes.
Osamu, 70 years is too long to live in the nuclear shadow. The only way we can guarantee the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are never repeated is to eliminate nuclear weapons. Everywhere.
We can make that happen, but only if we speak loud enough to cut through the noise and get our leaders’ attention. That’s why I’m asking you to take part in this global day of action and solidarity. Please add your voice to our call for the elimination of all nuclear weapons.
Thank you for everything you do to keep us moving forward.
Global Zero is the international movement for the elimination of all nuclear weapons.
