NEVER AGAIN - NO MORE HIROSHIMA and NAGASAKI - 
NO MORE VICTIMS - ABOLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS
"Why do we stand in silence and float candle boats"?

*To remember the more than 210,000 killed, and the many more injured, by the U.S. nuclear attack on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9 in 1945.

*To remember the original five nuclear states have not taken serious action to abolish nuclear weapons, which has led India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel to acquire nuclear weapons.

*To remember that the U.S. should support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and adopt a "No First Use" doctrine: the U.S. must never be the first to use nuclear weapons.

*To remember that the danger of nuclear war is ever present and that without a powerful grassroots movement dedicated to nuclear abolition, the unthinkable, another Hiroshima or Nagasaki, is possible.
