A Call to Commemorate the 70th Anniversaries of the Hiroshima & Nagasaki A-Bombings

"It is because of nuclear weapons that the human race continues to be threatened. That is why, ultimately, the one thing that we atomic bomb survivors are calling for is the elimination of every last nuclear weapon." – Chieko Watanabe – Nagasaki Hibakusha

“The release of atomic power has changed everything except our way of thinking ... the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.” – Albert Einstein
