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.

Subject of Peace and prevention of war: Let's keep our promises to the hungry yet without Monsanto and Genetically Modified or Engineered seeds, food and pesticides which will only bring more suffering later. The following effort is backed by Bishop Desmond Tutu:

Right now more than 18 million people in the Sahel region of West and Central Africa are facing a desperate shortage of food. Again. We know how to stop this cycle of one crisis after another, and yet it is allowed to continue.

Please join me in signing the petition right now at:

The G8 met at Camp David in May and formed something called the New Alliance to lift 50 million people out of poverty through long-term agriculture plans. This was a an important step forward for the first 3 countries named in the G8 plans.

But now it is time to deliver for more countries— including 6 in the Sahel region— that stand ready to lift themselves out of poverty. This means a total of 15 countries by the end of the year. And next year, the G8 should double that number, reaching the full 30 countries that are currently ready to go.
