Hiroshima – Never again

It is 68 years since the first atomic bombs were dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 200,000 people died. Warfare would never be the same again. This was a new type of weapon, unable to distinguish between soldiers and civilians, a weapon of indiscriminate mass laughter.

Tomorrow, 6 Aug, the world is commemorating the Hiroshima disaster and Scottish CND would like to express their solidarity with victims of use of Nuclear Weapons in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Arthur West, Chair of Scottish CND, said:

“The horror of nuclear warfare was very clearly shown by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The memory of these two tragic events reminds everyone involved in Scottish CND and the wider Peace Movement that we must continue with our efforts to rid our country and our world of the menace of illegal and immoral nuclear weapons.”

There are numerous rallies, peace walks, vigils and memorial events taking place all over Scotland.

In Glasgow, there will be a peace walk between the Botanic Gardens and Kelvingrove Park peace trees (Invited speakers: Councillor Bill Butler and Councillor Martha Wardrop).

The Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament will also host events in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Stirling, Helensburgh, Paisley and other areas.

Please check the events section for more details or call the office.
