Four Part Peace Mission Statement

 H&D  NA  Commemoration No.69 of August 2014

from the March 1950 Stockholm Peace Appeal

From Elsie Locke's Peace People

1992  ISBN 0-908790-20-1  

page 135

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

1.We demand the absolute banning of the atomic weapon, arm of terror and mass extermination of populations.

2.We demand the establishment of strict international control to ensure the implementation of this

banning measure. 3.We consider that any government which would be the first to use

the atomic weapon against any country whatsoever would be committing

a crime against humanity and should be dealt with as a war

criminal. 4.We call on all men and women of

good will throughout the world to

sign (support) this appeal.

From Wikipedia  

 

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_Appeal

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

Setting a date to ban atomic weapons is a simple step. For instance, Monday 22 September 2014

might seem ridiculously close to most people, but why not then? It would simply mean

that, by international treaty, from then on, they would all be taken off

deployment and locked in storage for dismantling.

A nuclear bomb blast is extremely hot. The "A" bomb victims had unusual burns. Many suffered sudden, intense heat from the initial flash and survived with terrible burns. They often healed with secondary scaring of benign growths or keloids. Repeated surgery removed them.

Below A photograph of Sumiteru Taniguchi's back injuries, from the Nagasaki blast,taken in January 1946 by a US Marine photographer. (Over six months of discomfort. Nerve endings were evidently damaged that initially reduced his pain. Skin grafts seemed absent)
