Thousands Mourn The Anniversary Of Being Nuked.
Thousands gathered in Nagasaki, Japan to mark the 60th anniversary of the US atomic attack on the city. At least 80,000 died in the bombing, that followed the US atomic attack on Hiroshima. A bronze bell rang over the city marking the precise moment 60 years ago when the attack took place. Ichho Itoh, Nagasaki’s Mayor said at the ceremony, “The United States has 10,000 nuclear weapons, has conducted sub-critical nuclear tests and on top of that is pursuing the development of miniature nuclear weapons. Do the American people really think the policies of their country are going to bring about peace?” Itoh went on to say, “We understand your anger and anxiety over the memories of the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Yet, is your security enhanced by your government’s policies of maintaining [those] 10,000 nuclear weapons?”
