Nagasaki marks anniversary of atomic bomb attack

Associated Press / August 9, 2012
TOKYO (AP) — Japanese officials pledged Thursday to seek a society less reliant on nuclear energy as the country marked the 67th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki.
About 6,000 people gathered at a peace park near the epicenter of the 1945 blast, including students and the mayor of one of the towns most affected by last year’s nuclear disaster.
Almost a year and half after the world’s second worst accident at a nuclear power plant, concerns about the safety of nuclear energy and radiation effects persist.
Nagasaki Mayor Tomihisa Taue said the accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, which was struck by a tsunami last March, has revealed the risk of nuclear technology.
Taue urged Japan to map out concrete plans to achieve a nuclear-free society where people don’t need to worry about the effects of radiation. He also called for renewed commitment to a global ban on nuclear weapons.
