Peace Action of Staten Island is partnering with the Unitarian Church of Staten Island to celebrate and bring awareness to the new UN nuclear weapons ban treaty with a procession for peace that will take place on the anniversary of the atom bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  The atom bombs were dropped on these two Japanese cities on August 6 and 9, respectively, in 1945. The human cost of the atom bomb attacks was enormous: conservatively over 240,000 people lost their lives.  Today’s nuclear weapons are 75 or more times powerful than those dropped 72 years ago, and the humanitarian consequences of just a small nuclear exchange could cause world-wide famine.  That is why it is so important to remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to work for complete nuclear weapons abolition.
