(August 2015) On August 6, 1945, the U.S. dropped the first nuclear bomb, on Hiroshima, Japan. At the end of World War II, atomic power represented hope. Now, 70 years later, people around the world see nuclear weapons (and nuclear power) as incompatible with long-term human survival. Stand with us for sustainable future, free of nuclear weapons!
