Have A Sad Birthday

61 years ago on 6th August 1945 the first nuclear bomb was dropped on a civilian target, the city of Hiroshima in Japan, 3 days later another was dropped on the city of Nagasaki. These American acts of genocide, which killed as many as 210,000, were unnecessary and designed to kick-start the Cold War rather than end the Second World War.

Memorial protest demonstrations are occurring around the world. There may be one nearby you can join. If not, it is pretty easy to make one: A hunk of cardboard, a magic marker, a public sidewalk, two feet, one backbone, five letters, two words, easy to spell, "NO WAR".
