REMEMBERING HIROSHIMA & NAGASAKI: 71 YEARS AFTER

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped a uranium bomb on Hiroshima, a city of 350.000. The bomb instantly killed a third of the population, most of them civilians. Three days later, it dropped a plutonium bomb on Nagasaki. It too killed tens of thousands of people. In both cities many more would be dead by the year’s end, as a result of injuries and radiation poisoning.

On the 71st anniversary of these horrific events, we remember:
•The victims of the 1945 bombings.
•Those who have died or been injured in nuclear accidents.
•Those who have died or been injured from working in the uranium industry.
•Those whose lives, land, and resources have been impacted by uranium mining.
