In Memory of the Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

August 6, 2009

FCNL staff members light a candle for a moment of silence in memory of the bombing of Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9th. To see more pictures, check out Citizens for Global Solutions’ Virtual Vigil.

These bombings killed over 200,000 people by the end of 1945. 64 years later, we are still standing in the shadow of nuclear weapons. Although Obama has committed to working toward a world free of nuclear weapons, we still need to work hard to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).

What can you do? You can help by distributing this flyer, organizing in your community, and getting the attention of your elected officials through letters to the editor and op-eds in your local newspaper. Check out the July/August Contacts Newsletter to find out more you can do to ensure that by this time next year we are celebrating the ratification of the CTBT!
