Mhairi Black MP spoke at Renfrewshire CND's commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She said:
"There is no war that serves any other purpose than to destroy. But there is something that is different, an extra dimension to nuclear weapons, because when a bomb falls and its victims are taken on instant impact it is horrendous, but when a nuclear bomb falls for those that survive, it's only the beginning. Gums will bleed, hair will fall out in clumps, skin will begin to erode, children will be born deformed with disabilities, they will be born with instant disadvantages. And yet, we have not seemed to learn from this."

At the Glasgow CND 70th Hiroshima commemoration, John Ainslie (Scottish CND Coordinator) gave a presentation on the myth of how the bomb ended the war. This is available as a pdf document. There is also video of the event (talk at 22:25). At 11 pm on 8 August 1945 the Soviet Union declared war on Japan. It can be argued that it was the shock of this that pushed an already defeated Japan into formally surrendering. The photo shows a Japanese officer surrendering to the Soviet Union in 1945.
