Hiroshima Peace Song  Sung at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on 6 August since 1947, except for 1950.  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CB2GGafu6Q        (copy and paste)  Song starts at 22 seconds.

White clouds overhead,
the bell rings, the bell of peace,
echoing east and west,
to the summit of the sky.

We rise in courage
to regain our glory.

By the swelling blue waves,
the bell rings, the bell of peace,
sounding prayers far and wide,
north and south, to the depths of the sea.

We surmount our sorrow
and gaze ahead to the horizon.

In the clear, sparkling air,
The bell rings, the bell of peace,
pealing for our fondest hopes
to our borders and beyond,
reaching out to the world
and singing out in harmony.

Music by Minoru Yamamoto  (1913  - 1996)  Winner of a competition for the song.

Lyrics by Yoshio Shigezono, (1908 -  1980) 

 

 Please come to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Atomic Bombings' 72nd Anniversary, "Never Again" 

Commemoration, to be held at Wellington's Botanic Garden, Peace Flame Garden, from 

10am to 11:30am, Sunday 6th August 2017, or the nearby Begonia House if raining.

In conjunction with the Wellington City Council, run by the New Zealand Campaign

For Nuclear Disarmament. Hiroshima, Japan, was inhumanly, uranium atomic

bombed on 6 August 1945. Nagasaki's plutonium atomic bombing was 

on 9 August. Soon after these civilian-populated cities' horrific tests,

USA agreed to the Japanese surrender.  "2017 Hiroshima &

Nagasaki 72. Nuclear weapons' heavenly shoo".

Heavenly means for ultimate good and shoo

means to banish. This is New Zealand's,

Southern Cross Flag linked, galactic

oust of, already illegal, nuclear

weapons, globally.

At 8:15am, on 6 August 1945, Hiroshima was the first city to experience the cruel fury

of an atomic weapon, from a uranium based chain reaction. On 9 August 1945,

at 11:02am, the City of Nagasaki was the next to be devastated like this but

with a plutonium device. Over 230,000 were killed in the two blasts.

We hope there will never be a third city so treated, anywhere.

The suffering of the victims of these attacks was 

unlike anything before, with burns, radiation

sickness and glass shard

impregnation.

New Zealand is a member of the New Agenda Coalition [NAC] with  Brazil, Egypt, Ireland, Mexico and

South Africa. It's to speed up progress towards the global abolition of nuclear weapons by jointly

speaking up in high alarm over this lack of progress. We highlight the current "hair trigger" 

deployment of three thousand  nuclear weapons that are continually ready to fire

in as low as ten minutes notice of a warning. Moreover, our coalition

emphasizes that the use of even one nuclear weapon

would bring unprecedented suffering and

damage to a large city as are

currently targeted.

 Nuclear Free

New  Zealand's

Bedrock  Foundation

 

 

The South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone Treaty 

Commonly called

The Treaty of Rarotonga 

It's the foundation of the "New Zealand

Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament,

and Arms Control Act 1987"

 

 <<<>>> 

 

It's Article 3(c) is a very clear non encouragement clause preventing 

respect of overseas nuclear weapons activity, from within

the New Zealand Nuclear Weapons Free Zone.  

 "Each Party undertakes not to take any action

to assist or encourage the manufacture

or acquisition of any nuclear

explosive device by

any State."

X 

The law:-

"New Zealand

Nuclear Free Zone,

Disarmament, and  Arms Control

Act 1987". Section 5(2)(b) states that, "No person,

who is a New Zealand citizen or a person ordinarily resident

in New Zealand, and who is a servant or agent of the Crown, shall,

beyond the New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, aid, abet, or procure any person

to manufacture, acquire, possess, or have control over any nuclear explosive device."

 

<<<<>>>> 

 

1. Epic Event  On 6 August 1985, the "South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone Treaty" was signed in Rarotonga. It's also "The Treaty of Rarotonga." Article 3 is "Renunciation of nuclear explosive devices". It's a total ban. 

             http://disarmament.un.org/treaties/t/rarotonga/text       .......  The Treaty of Rarotonga text    (Kindly please copy and paste both)

              http://disarmament.un.org/treaties/t/npt/text           ..........  UN Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty text (please see preamble's end)

2. Anchor Point The basis of the "New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament, and Arms Control Act 1987", number 86 is The Treaty of Rarotonga. It  extends from Australia to Pitcairn Island. The Treaty of Tlatelolco then takes over, through Easter Island and on to the Caribbean and Latin America, for a zone covering over half the circumference of the southern hemisphere, including Antarctica. 

3. Rejected The Treaty's Article 3, "Renunciation of nuclear explosive devices" is about New Zealand's rejection and disconnection from these utterly evil devices. Proof was on 6 & 9 August 1945, at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Article 3(c) bans "....any action to assist or encourage the manufacture or acquisition of any nuclear explosive device by any State." New Zealand's officially discourages everything about nuclear weapons, including their manufacture and maintenance, by companies like Lockheed-Martin and Serco. It's an "active and effective contribution, by New Zealand, to the essential process of disarmament."

4. Active and Effective The 8 June 1987 New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone Act is, "....to promote and encourage an active and effective contribution by New Zealand to the essential process of disarmament and international arms control....." Like the 1985 regional treaty's Article 3(c), the 1987/86 local Act's Section 5(2)(b), bans the encouragement of overseas nuclear weapons activity.(Kindly please copy and paste the link to S.5(2)(b) in point 12.[d] below) The International Peace Symbol, or CND ban the bomb sign is officially,   absolutely, ours. It symbolizes what New Zealand is solemnly, legally, committed to, in promoting peace.

5. Tainted but used  The New Zealand Government appears to severely deviate from this specific, Article 3(c)commitment. Ardent workers who strive for a nuclear weapons free world:- Please be alarmed! It officially approved the, deeply nuclear weapons tainted, Serco, to do the day to day work, at the Auckland South Corrections Facility. (ASCF) It's a men's prison at Wiri that's under the ultimate control of the Department of Corrections. They've denied any wrong doing, to the author, as has the Minister of Corrections. New Zealand's Parliamentary renunciation of nuclear explosive devices is a total departure from this evil. There are no grades, levels or degrees of renunciation. It's absolute, as a recovering alcoholic must never touch alcohol again, as a Police Officer upholds all of a nation's laws or as a king abdicates.

6. 29 years ignored Had Government Ministers and the Department of Corrections intensely studied the Treaty of Rarotonga, they'd have seen it incorrectly in Schedule 1 of the "New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament, and Arms Control Act 1987". There was a serious error in it for 29 years. The "Article 3" heading was missing. The crucial Article 3 was shown as if part of Article 2. The author had been quoting a non-existant Article 2(2)(c) to them. It was shown, as if this, for Article 3(c). It remains as if 2(2)(c), until corrected, in the law book form, all over New Zealand. It's been admirably corrected in "Legislation" on-line.

7. Alien nuclear weapon culture Article 3(c) is the key article that stops a hypocritical claim to be an anti nuclear weapon nation when giving "green for go", "ticked box" approval to a maker and maintainer, as a role model for prisoners' reform. The UK can correctly say that our stance on nuclear weapons is suspect, while Serco make and maintain their Trident nuclear weapons warheads in Aldermaston yet, are allowed to run the day to day activities at the ASCF. Serco are of an alien, rejected, nuclear weapons approving culture, to New Zealand. They would seem to have no "Treaty of Rorotonga respecting place", in any Government, or Government agent, operation here. For instance, SecureFuture is a company that's contracted to the Government at the ASCF, who employ Serco in New Zealand. Our nuclear free law's section 5(2)(b) applies to Government agents as well. It's watertight and loophole free. Rt. Hon. David Lange ensured that, as an astute legal professional, in 1987.

8. How did it happen? The author contacted the Parliamentary Counsel  Office, who first got advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The Treaty of Rarotonga's Article 2 and 3 were then corrected.  The alleged breach of the Treaty of Rarotonga, at the Wiri Prison, by having a nuclear weapons maker respected, as if an honourable role model, is a crucial matter for our consideration. How were our South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone Treaty commitments and nuclear free zone law  requirements  misunderstood? We constructively commemorate the 6 and 9 August 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 2017, at the Botanic Garden, Peace Flame Garden, on Sunday 6 August, in a combined, commemorative, 10am to 11:30am event.

9. Early August global events These aim to get positive action towards a global ban, in the near future, via the UN Draft Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Convention. It's been under discussion at the UN, resulting in the final draft of 6 July 2017. Kindly please see the link in 12[a], plus copy and paste:-  http://www.icanw.org/  Hibakusha, a Japanese word for atomic bomb victims, are uniquely mentioned in this draft's sixth preamble point with, "Mindful of the unacceptable suffering of and harm caused to the victims of the use of nuclear weapons (hibakusha), as well as of those affected by the testing of nuclear weapons," However, specific mention of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is absent from this and the nuclear free zone treaty texts mentioned here. It's why we put so much attention on these cities' experiences, during the 6 and 9 August events.

10. Hibakusha respect New Zealand is coldly unsupportive of Hibakusha, nuclear weapons victims, with Serco at the Wiri prison. These Hiroshima, Nagasaki and test area atomic bomb victims must be warmly  supported and revered for their crucial message to us of, "Never Again". Serco's immediate removal from the prison is essential for this. New Zealand is fully committed to Article 3(c) of the Treaty of Rarotonga, "Renunciation of nuclear explosive devices". Makers and maintainers of these devices are thereby rejected too. They're unfit to do Government work in nuclear free New Zealand. We formally broke away from the sickening nuclear weapons degradation in 1985 and added prison penalties in the 1987 number 86 Act. We've officially left this evil forever.  We admirably ban nuclear weapons but shamefully respect and pay a  maker. That's bad. This apparent state sponsored duplicity must stop. Serco must leave the ASCF for us to truly follow our Treaty of Rarotonga, Article 3(c) commitment, not to encourage nuclear weapons activity. 

11. Mission to remove nuclear weapons New Zealand wants the total disestablishment of atomic/nuclear weapons, globally. Serco help to make and maintain the UK's Trident nuclear weapons' warheads, in England's Aldermaston and Burghfield factories. They're the UK locations of the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE)  partnership of Serco, Lockheed Martin and Jacobs Engineering. This AWE Corporate video, shown here once more, explains it's work, with the partners' individual logos at 1min 25sec.         

               www.awe.co.uk/about-us/corporate-video/              ...........       Kindly please copy and paste to see the Serco logo.

12. A common requirement  The discouragement of nuclear weapons possession, by any other nation, is a key aspect of treaties for the abolition of nuclear weapons, including the 6 July 2017 Draft UN Global Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, with it's Article 1(1)(e) and the Treaty of Tlatelolco's Article 1(2), plus the New Zealand nuclear free zone law of 1987, in Section 5(2)(b), as well as the Treaty of Rorotonga's Article 3(c) encouragement ban. Encourage  1. to inspire or 2. to stimulate. (Collins Dictionary) 

[a]       http://undocs.org/A/CONF.229/2017/L.3/Rev.1       Draft UN Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons for Article 1(1)(e)

[b]      http://www.opanal.org/en/text-of-the-treaty-of-tlatelolco/                                 Treaty of Tlatelolco   .....    for Article 1(2)

13. Influence abroad It's often assumed, even by some Government officials, that the New Zealand nuclear free zone Act of 1987, is only to prevent nuclear weapons activities within New Zealand's nuclear free zone. It isn't, exclusively, for that. Clauses in points 12(a),(c) and (d) above, deal with New Zealand's potential to influence other nations from within the zone. They ban giving encouragement to any nation's nuclear weapons warhead activities. For instance, not honouring the UK's and USA's nuclear weapons warhead makers, Serco, Lockheed-Martin and Jacobs Engineering. Serco are used at the Wiri prison and Lockheed-Martin sponsor the annual New Zealand Defence Industry Association Forums. They've been  held in local government controlled buildings in Wellington and Auckland.

14. Worldwide New Zealand is admirably and inspirationally known, everywhere, as the strongest opponent of nuclear weapons. Rt. Hon. David Lange's, March 1985, Oxford Union Debate speech, is world famous. 

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCZFPfe0LvA                 ...............  Key statement at 29min 35sec     (Kindly please copy and paste)

           https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand_nuclear-free_zone                 ........       Rt. Hon . David Lange's legacy    "  "   "

The use of Serco at the Wiri prison undermines and frustrates this influential reputation. Serco globally use a common logo and have a group chief executive officer. It's a global enterprise, as seen in their website. It refers to Serco's over 50,000 staff worldwide.

15. Fourth Nuremberg Principle It's up to private citizens to also uphold and promote the laws of our land and international law. We've a personal responsibility, irrespective of whether or not the state is following it's own rules or those of the UN Charter and Geneva Conventions.  Our nuclear free zone law promotes and encourages "an active and effective contribution, by New Zealand, to the essential process of disarmament and international arms control". The urgent abolition of nuclear weapons is an essential part of this process. It's based on the inhuman effects of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These cities' citizens and land were devastated as never before.       https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_principles        ..........  Kindly please copy and paste

16. Nuclear weapons are for aiming at civilians in large cities  The August 1945 atom bomb effects show how current nuclear weapons would be so much worse. This absolutely dictates that all nuclear weapons must be abolished immediately. A typical W87 nuclear warhead is twenty times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb. (kindly please see 2016 Archive photo further below) Targeted, glass canyoned cities would have  800kph+ hyper hurricanes of piercing glass splinters. Hiroshima and Nagasaki's windows were transformed into millions of dagger-like weapons. A volcanic eruptions' falling ash, hot gas blasts and red hot falling rocks are beyond our control. Nuclear weapons' heat, blast effects, radiation and poisonous fallout are certainly not. It's time that this reality was fully realized globally and acted upon. Nuclear weapons are relatively easy to abolish on this basis. 

17. Shards of broken glass City dwellers have a duty to themselves to sensibly peacefully protest at this outrage. Otherwise, the nuclear weapons nations will think that we're grateful for this continual state of threatened instant vapourization or agonizing days, months or lifetimes  of suffering. We certainly aren't. Removal of this threat is our essential task. Hibakusha recent cremation remains sometimes have glass blobs to reveal over seven decades of possible suffering from embedded glass spikes. "Some people were struck by so many shards of broken glass that some of the glass had to be left inside their bodies." What more does anyone need to be convinced in the need for nuclear weapons' urgent global abolition?

 18. Ten fallacies concerning Hiroshima and Nagasaki's atomic bombing and today's threats. 

 Dr. David Krieger, who's the President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation [NAPF], has ten such myths in their website, with a very thorough rebuttal for each. 

Ten myths and rebuttals in the NAPF website  .....  http://www.wagingpeace.org/ten-myths-about-nuclear-weapons/  

 

 NAPF's ten myths that falsely glorify nuclear weapons

(1) Nuclear weapons were needed to defeat Japan in World War II.

(2) Nuclear weapons prevented a war between the United States and the Soviet Union.

(3) Nuclear threats have gone away since the end of the Cold War.

(4) The United States needs nuclear weapons for its national security.

(5) Nuclear weapons make a country safer.

(6) No leader would be crazy enough to actually use nuclear weapons.

(7) Nuclear weapons are a cost-effective method of national defense.

(8) Nuclear weapons are well protected and there is little chance that terrorists could get their hands on one.

(9) The United States is working to fulfill its nuclear disarmament obligations.

(10) Nuclear weapons are needed to combat threats from terrorists and “rogue states.”

 "2016 Hiroshima and Nagasaki  71 to get their serenity won"  

What message would uplift the spirit of the survivors of the

two cities that were nuclear bombed? Answer :-

100% Guaranteed Wellington assurance by

attenders at the commemoration that

nuclear weapons, were, are and

always will be diabolically

evil and totally illegal.

Nuclear weapons

grossly violate the dominant

Geneva Conventions prime principle of

civilian protection. They're illegal chemical and

biological weapons, cause black rain radiation sickness,

cancers, birth defects and intergenerational genetic damage. 

They insult humanity's unity. They've no legal right to exist, whatsoever. 


Has New Zealand's law against Nuclear Weapons "got teeth"

when it comes to its ban on aiding and abetting nuclear

weapons manufacture and control? For instance,

should a nuclear weapons manufacturer be

allowed, under it, to run and manage 

some New Zealand prisons? 

Abet means to aid in evil.

Image result for absolutely free photos of peace symbol 

New Zealand is fully committed

to opposing, and not encouraging the

manufacture of nuclear weapons via this law.

http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1987/0086/latest/DLM115141.html

Kindly please see Section 5 (2) (b) which prevents Government run

funds from being invested in nuclear weapons manufacture. How much more

serious is the awarding of a contract, to assist two New Zealand prisons, to an enterprise

that makes evil nuclear weapons?  It's the Serco conglomerate, with an overall chief executive

officer, that has one of it's divisions to evilly make, maintain, and control the transport of

nuclear weapons in Great Britain. It would seem to be very considerably more

serious, to a layperson. We must wake up to the evil of nuclear weapons.

Serco have had their nuclear weapons contracts, in the UK, extended to 2025. There can be no doubt that New Zealand prisons can not be run or, in any way helped by Serco, under current New Zealand's strong anti nuclear weapons legislation.

The next step 

Kindly please decide if you would like to see the justice done here of making our stand against nuclear weapons fully effective and inspiring the rest of the world to stand up straight for a nuclear weapons free world at the earliest. We only need to realise that nuclear weapons are like an unwanted cancer to remove safely by medical expertise. We should have an "easy task" mindset towards this objective.

It's logical to feel powerless in the face of nature's huge forces such as volcanoes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, meteors and solar flares but not, in the face of the nuclear weapons threat. They are not "Acts of God" and can be relatively easily abolished for ever. It's simply a matter of realizing their being under the control of human brains and so will be like wise permanently removed. It requires the right thinking, by the right number of people, to bring success.   

When you have decided, simply ask the Minister of Justice, Hon Judith Collins, via post free letter, or email, to Parliament, to investigate why 1987 No. 86  Section 5 (2) (b) has not prevented nuclear weapons manufacturer Serco from running or in any way assisting two New Zealand prisons. Kindly please say that it should have been prevented  because New Zealand is opposed, under legislation, to evil nuclear weapons and so certainly must not do anything to encourage or assist, in any way, their manufacture, improvement or transport.

Finally Be alerted to an astonishing fact in New Zealand, over our neglect to officially recognize inhuman treatment and punishment as wrong. It's required, under our responsibilities, as a diligent United Nations Member State, who has ratified Article 7 of the binding International Convention of Civil and Political Rights, to be in force.  

Kindly please see this website for details and the need for prompt Government action to correct:- 

www.boract.webs.com  

Act Now Remember please, if you would be so kind, that a letter to the Minister of Justice, Hon. Amy Adams, at Parliament is free, like an email, and will be doubly effective, since the writer has initiated correspondence on it with her. Unless New Zealand, nationally, officially, fully recognizes inhuman treatment and punishment as wrong, how can it properly, officially, internationally recognise the suffering of the Japanese people, who were inhumanly atomic bombed on the 6 and 9 August 1945? In many cases they still suffer both in hospitals and with their families.

Most importantly, they alert us, as their having been unfortunate "human guinea pigs", to the far worse potential of today's 24/7 deployed nuclear weapons, which monstrously depend on glass walled cities to target for vapourization and to cause supersonic hurricanes of glass splinters.

Nuclear weapons abolition is a relatively easy task for everyone to become involved with.  We merely need to expose, how they always were, are and always will be illegal.

2016 Commemoration

Speeches 

Sent: Monday, 8 August 2016 2:15 a.m.
To: Richard Tingey
Subject: RE: 2016 Hiroshima and Nagasaki 71

 

Dear Richard,

 

Thank you very much for sending the information to the Ambassador over the weekend. At his request I am sending you the message he delivered at the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Commemoration yesterday:

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

 

PEACE FLAME GARDEN –WELLINGTON - BOTANIC GARDEN – 7 AUGUST 2016)

 

Tena koutou katoa, kia ora e hoa ma.

Her Worship Celia Wade-Brown, Mr Richard Tingey, my colleagues, ladies and gentlemen.

 

Those who watched yesterday the opening of the Olympic Games in Brazil noticed the strong message of alert to what improper human behavior can do to our environment and the resulting consequences it can bring to our lives. Nuclear weapons pose even more damaging and unpredictable consequences, due to the instabilities of our world today.

Brazil holds the largest Japanese community outside Japan, so the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki 71 years ago are remembered with a special sadness. Having been posted to our Embassy in Tokyo for several years, and having visited the memorials of the bombings in those cities, I could verify very vividly the magnitude of the consequences of these events.

Brazil fortunately lives in one of the most pacific regions of the world, where nuclear weapons where banned since 1967 with the Tlatelolco Treaty signed by all Latin American countries. The Brazilian Constitution prohibits the development of nuclear arms. We have an agreement with Argentina stablishing a system of mutual inspections of our nuclear installations, to assure that they are being used only for pacific purposes.

Brazil and many other countries are very unhappy with the way that the NPT is being implemented, because we signed it in confidence that its clause regarding disarmament would be properly enforced. We are working with other countries, including New Zealand, to press nuclear countries to fulfill their obligations according to the NPT. We also adhere to the new emphasis of the humanitarian aspect in the campaign for the total abolishment of nuclear weapons.

Let me conclude expressing my full endorsement of the contents of letters from the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, read minutes ago by New Zealand and international students. The lack of advances in the implementation of the TNP, instead of being the cause for demotivation, has to strengthen our resolve and perseverance in our campaign for the abolishment of nuclear arms.

Thank you,

Kia ora.

 

(Eduardo Gradilone, Ambassador of Brazil)

Here's a poem about what we're focused on urgently stopping, via global 

nuclear weapons abolition, for an enduring, healthy humanity. 

It's "The Merry-Go-Round" by David Krieger, President

of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, NAPF.

 Image result for merry go round free non copyrighted photos

THE MERRY-GO-ROUND

The end could begin with a missile launched by accident.

And then the response would be deliberate, as would be

the counter-response, and on and on until we were all

gone.

Or, it could be deliberate from the outset, an act

of madness by a suicidal leader, setting the end in motion.

 

First, the blasts and mushroom clouds.  Then the fires

and burning cities and the winds driving the fires, turning

humans into projectiles, and all of it mixed with deadly

radiation.  Finally, for the last act, the soot from destroyed

cities rising into the upper stratosphere, blocking the sunlight

and the temperatures falling into a frozen Ice Age, followed

by mass starvation.

 

If any humans were left to name it, they might call it 

“Global Hiroshima,” but none would be left.

It would be ugly for a while, eerily still and silent

for some stretch of time, but no one would be there

to observe.  Still, the Earth would go on rotating

around the sun and the universe would go on expanding.

Only we humans would be off the not-so-merry-go-round.

"Never Again"

Hiroshima and Nagasaki's vapourizing atomic weapons blasts of 6th and 9th August 1945, caused survivors'

fatal, immediate radiation sickness. Decades of terrible suffering followed from radiation induced

cancers, birth defects, severe burn disfigurements and glass spikes which often penetrated

 too deeply to remove safely. Immediate deaths were 80,000 in Hiroshima and

40,000 in Nagasaki. By 1946 it was 135,000 and 50,000 respectively.

"Never again" anywhere, is surely the only humane

response to this unnecessary calamity. It was

also illegal. Civilians must never be

 targeted for attack,via the

Geneva Conventions' 

first principle.

Three step success formula

 for abolishing nuclear

weapons globally

 

[1] Realize that, individually, we  don't want to be killed or injured by a  nuclear  weapon.

[2] Emphasise to all that we also don't want this fate to fall on anyone else, anywhere.

[3] To combine, with all people, to demand that all nuclear weapons

nations immediately deactivate and destroy all of their stocks of nuclear

weapons, as an act of humanity, under UN control.  We claim this

justice right, as a united global family, who these weapons

depend upon, in large cities, to threaten with instant

vapourization, fatal radiation sickness, cancers,

birth defects and slow, painful death. We

want our humanity respected. The

targeting of civilians with

attack is  illegal.
