No More Hiroshimas


On the 64th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, which killed over 140,000 people, almost all of them civilians, Hiroshima's mayor urged global leaders to back President Obama's call to abolish nuclear weapons – and anti-war activists urged Obama to follow through on his commitment. Remembrances included the words of President Truman's Military Chief of Staff Admiral Leahy on "the use of this barbarous weapon."

"Wars cannot be won by destroying women and children."
