Today, August 6th, marks the 76th anniversary of the Hiroshima atomic bombing. This event took place during WWII and known as the world’s first nuclear bombing.

The blast instantly killed up to 80,000 people; tens of thousands more would later die of radiation exposure. Three days later, a second one dropped on Nagasaki, killing around 40,000 people.

Japan’s Emperor Hirohito announced the country’s unconditional surrender in a radio address on August 15th. He cited the power of “a new and most cruel bomb.”

Presently, the mayor of Hiroshima, Kazumi Matsui, urges world leaders to unite to eliminate nuclear weapons just as they are against the coronavirus.

“Nuclear weapons, developed to win wars, are a threat of total annihilation that we can certainly end if all nations work together,” said Kazumi Matsui.

Matsui demands that the government of Japan immediately sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga provided a speech at the Hiroshima Peace Park ceremony, where survivors and officials observed a minute of silence for the 8:15 a.m. blast. Later in a news conference, Suga said he has no intention of signing the Treaty.

“The Treaty lacks support not only from the nuclear weapons states including the United States but also from many countries that do not possess nuclear arms… What’s appropriate is to seek a passage to realistically promote nuclear disarmament.” said Yoshihide Suga.
