Today, August 6, and Sunday, August 9, 2020, are the 75th anniversaries of the US attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively. These attacks remind us not only of the death, destruction, and devastation that nuclear weapons caused 75 years ago (and through nuclear testing in the decades since), but the danger they continue to pose as part of the arsenals of nine countries in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Check out the fantastic website hiroshimanagasaki75.org from a coalition of anti-nuclear activists, of which we are a partner. The website features a powerful Voices section from Japanese victims and others around the world, including the Marshall Islands. Join the coalition's virtual events today at 11 a.m. and on August 9th at 2 p.m. You may also want to read one of our most popular articles (Hiroshima and Natasaki: The Long Term Health Effects).
