The paper cranes are not just a symbol of peace, but also a call to action. They are a reminder that we must keep pushing to see the #endofnukes.

August 3, 2018 | [The week of August 5, 2018] marks 73 years since two atomic bombs were dropped over the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed and maimed, and the effects are still being felt today. But while the mushroom clouds became iconic symbols of mass destruction, and the paper cranes a symbol of hope for a nuclear-free world, there are many things you may not know – or may have forgotten – that are really important if we’re going to make sure this never happens again.

#1 More than 210,000 people were killed

By the end of 1945, the bombing had killed an estimated 140,000 people in Hiroshima, and a further 74,000 in Nagasaki. In the years that followed, many of the survivors would face leukemia, cancer, or other terrible side effects from the radiation.

“Each person had a name. Each person was loved by someone. Let us ensure that their deaths were not in vain.” - Setsuko Thurlow, survivor of the August 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, December 2017

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a coalition of non-governmental organizations in one hundred countries promoting adherence to and implementation of the United Nations nuclear weapon ban treaty. This landmark global agreement was adopted in New York on 7 July 2017.

Disarmament is the process of reducing and eradicating nuclear weapons, as well as ensuring that countries without weapons are not able to develop them. This movement holds that there is never a legitimate use for nuclear arms, and peace will only come with complete disarmament.

July 18, 2018 | Nuclear disarmament is the process of reducing and eradicating nuclear weapons, as well as ensuring that countries without nuclear weapons are not able to develop them. The movement to denuclearize hopes to eliminate the possibility of nuclear war because of its potential for catastrophic consequences, as demonstrated by the United States’ bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. This movement holds that there is never a legitimate use for nuclear weapons, and peace will only come with complete disarmament.

Origins of the Anti-Nuclear Weapons Movement

In 1939, Albert Einstein informed President Theodore Roosevelt that the Nazis in Germany were close to building a nuclear weapon. In response, President Roosevelt formed the Advisory Committee on Uranium, which then led to the creation of the Manhattan Project to research nuclear weapon capabilities. The United States was the first nation to successfully build and detonate an atomic bomb.
