Hiroshima, Nagasaki – Never Again Nuclear War! No to Nuclear Weapons- theme for August 2020

This is perhaps the saddest photograph of the time of America’s August 1945 nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The dignity of this boy, as he waits, with his small dead brother strapped to his back, to include the brother in a mass grave.

We know that the bombing of people is unethical, immoral, and simply wrong.

We know that chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction are inhumane and immoral. The global human society knows this, too, and they are illegal under the United Nations Ban –  the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC)  and United Nations Biological Weapons Convention (BWC)

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons(TPNW), or the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty, is the first legally binding international agreement to comprehensively prohibit nuclear weapons, with the goal of leading towards their total elimination. 43 nations have ratified the treaty, and it was passed by 120 countries at the United Nations in July 2017.

The nuclear lobby, and the “hawks” may scoff, but this Treaty is clear evidence that the world is coming to see that considering the humanitarian effects of nuclear war, – the treaty prohibits the development, testing, production, stockpiling, stationing, transfer, use and threat of use of nuclear weapons, as well as assistance and encouragement to the prohibited activities.

The goal is the complete elimination of nuclear weapons. Sounds too extreme to be taken seriously?   It is not as extreme as the goal of using them, which is still actively being considered by the Pentagon.

It’s rarely mentioned that USA’s original plan was to explode a nuclear bomb on the moon. It’s rarely mentioned in the current hype about Mars exploration, that the Trump administration’s plan is for nuclear weapons in space .

The humanitarian, the “emotional” side, of discussing nuclear weapons is now taken seriously, much as the nuclear proponents will pontificate about “strategy”, “security” etc. With the UN nuclear ban treaty –   nuclear weapons are no longer “respectable”, and are headed towards eventual elimination.

  1. Japan USA Uk are seething sewer holes of radioactive Shit! The 2020 Olympic Games in Japan
    Sellafield Uk
    Murican smoke detectors

    Some muricans rightly care about Fukushima and the Olympics there but,
    Hell there is americium 241 in almost every disposable smoke detector sold, in murica. Americium is easily as bad as plutonium. There is enough of it in every Home Depot, 5 dollar smoke detector to kill an army.
    Think radioactive Nuclear Boy scout…

    The shit is massively accumulated in every landfill in murica.

    Muricas frkin criminal government allows it. They allow it because, it is a cheap way to pawn off some of the mega-tons of the high-level nuclear waste, from used nuclear fuel rods, from nuclear power plants, on a stupified and unsuspecting-uncaring-ignorant-moronic, public. Frikin millions of those shitty smoke detectors made. A shitty 3 dollar, smoke detector from walmart will cause a scinillator or gamma scout to go off the scale!
    The nucleoape nuclear reactor psychopaths, politicians, and smoke detector maker creeps, are profiting handsomely from your medical bankrupsies, your kids add-autism, your cancer and disabilities, your kids bad teeth and birth defects . What a bunch of dumn sukers americans are!

    Plutonium from Sellafield in all children’s teeth

    The Observer, November 30, 2003
    By Antony Barnett, public affairs editor

    Government admits plant is the source of contamination but says risk is ‘minute’.

    Radioactive pollution from the Sellafield nuclear plant in Cumbria has led to children’s teeth across Britain being contaminated with plutonium.

    The Government has admitted for the first time that Sellafield ‘is a source of plutonium contamination’ across the country. Public Health Minister Melanie Johnson has revealed that a study funded by the Department of Health discovered that the closer a child lived to Sellafield, the higher the levels of plutonium found in their teeth.

    Johnson said: ‘Analysis indicated that concentrations of plutonium… decreased with increasing distance from the west Cumbrian coast and its Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing plant – suggesting this plant is a source of plutonium contamination in the wider population.’

    Johnson claimed the levels of plutonium are so minute that there is no health risk to the public. But this is disputed by scientists, MPs and environmental campaigners who have called for an immediate inquiry into how one of the world’s most dangerous materials has been allowed to continue to contaminate children’s teeth. There have long been claims of clusters of childhood leukaemia around Sellafield.

    In the late 1990s researchers collected more than 3,000 molars extracted from young teenagers across the country during dental treatment and analysed them. To their surprise they found traces of plutonium in all the teeth including those from children in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Alarmingly, they discovered that those living closer to Sellafield had more than twice the amount of those living 140 miles away.

    Plutonium is a man-made radioactive material and the only source of it in Britain is from Sellafield. The plant, which reprocesses nuclear fuel from reactors, still discharges plutonium into the Irish Sea.

    The original research was carried out in 1997 by Professor Nick Priest who was working for the UK Atomic Energy Authority. At the time the conclusions of the research received little attention because the study concluded that the contamination levels were so minuscule they were thought to pose an ‘insignificant’ health risk.

    But earlier this year the Committee Examining Radiation Risks from Internal Emitters, looking at health risks posed by radioactive materials, examined Priest’s study.

  2. WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE FUKUSHIMA?
    Japan has Reopened Multiple- damaged dangerous, reactors and done nothing to stop the radioactive hemorraghe into the seas.

    Japan is going ahead full steam with the 2020 Radioactive Cesium 137 olympic games in Tokyo and Fukushima and Trumpo the Clown, Trump endorses them

    Trump encourages Abe to ship radioactive food to murica. Trump has made nuclear war thousands of times more probable. Fuko has lobbied to make american taxpayers pay, to keep, the most meltdown prone reactors in the world open in Ohio . Trump has gutted regulation of reactors and, ths hardening of some of the most earthquake, hrricane, and flood vulnerable reactors in the world.

    The Diablo canyon reactor has a radioactive leak from the two earthquakes. The Bay City reactors fuel pool is damaged from Harvey. When it floods and burns it will realease the radionuclide fallout, equivalent of 50,000 Nuclear Bombs. The Weatherford reactors in louisina are extensively damaged from flooding and hurricane Berry. Same for the Duke Energy Reacor in North Carolina that was damaged by Hurricane Florence.

    One of the 55 year old reactors in Ohio that Trump demanded and virtually forced to stay opened, has a hole in its containment from a nuclear accident 30 years ago. Trump and its cronies have completely deregugulated the supervion and oversight of the 97 most embrittled, cracked, dangerous, old nuclear reactors in the world.

    The Fort Calhoun Reactor was flooded by the unprecedented flooding in the midwest and south this year. Several other reactors were too. It has been flooding like this, every year in the south for ten years where there are multiple reactors. Several small rowns full of climate deniers, not allowed to rebuild on the governments dime anymore. What creeps and idiots, people like nadesan are. If they do not see it they do not believe it.

    Human Monkeys are a race of cowards! Dominated by psychopathic Mass murderers and Sadists.
    Cowardly monkeys, that have no determination to save their children. No value to save their world. They wallow in the trappings of crass materialism and enable the deranged sadism, torture and psychopathic insanity of the Sick Plutocrats. The devils have destroyed, most things left of virtue and beauty in the world.

    There will be a nuclear disaster in America soon. It is assured. It is assured by the chaotic-narcissism and hate that governs America and the neo-liberal authoritarian, kakicracies, now. It will happen soon in america. The nuclear disaster, will be covered-up. Another disaster will follow. The catastrophe will occur in the next 2-3 years or sooner.
    The illness will precipitate a societal breakdown, as is occuring in Ukraine and Japan.

    The decline and collapse will occur much more precipitously in America. America is in the the grip of a gross-simmering health crisis, from radionuclide pollution, that already exists.

    The monsterously irresponsible, Plutocratic-Kakiocracies in the west and, places like India or Korea will follow . Their Nuclear Death machines will explode from stupidity, aging and negligence. The nuclear cataclysms and climate change are insuring the demise of the human monkeys in 5-8 years.

    • Nadesan is not a creep. Talks about climate change. One of The most helpful people to get word out about nuclear. I hope a reactor here or anywhre does not go.

  5. The Real Bellarus Since Chernobyl

    https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/views/analysis/kevin-barry-in-chernobyl-misha-is-an-example-of-what-happens-when-a-country-is-on-its-knees-941735.html

    Merica is only partial nuclear hellland so far. A third of Japan is that way

    Bellarus is all Nuclear Helllaand.

    This is where murica is headed w the meltdowns. The recent nuclear catastrophes like santa susan-INL Continued nuclear insanty. Keeping deadly reactors open. Expanding the nuclear arms race.
    The survivors are not the luky ones. The massive amounts of disability and birth defects in Belarus. It already exists in Merica. It is eclipsing Japan from Fukushima and effecting south korea. We are killing the seas.
    Little or no arable farmland left from the Radionuclide poisoning in Belarus

    “The natives have had to develop a stoic acceptance of a hard frustrating life. On the night train from Gomel city to Minsk, they slug back cheap vodka and paint a picture of the everyday treachery of life in Belarus.

    There is talk of the country’s history, of the 35 Year War and The 26 Year War. There has always been trouble, says one woman, but Chernobyl, that was the worst.

    Day-to-day living in Belarus amounts to an unfeasible equation. Take Valentina in Minsk, who has been a teacher for 35 years and receives $30 per month.

    When she retires soon, she will receive $20 per month: The supermarkets aren’t much cheaper than in the West. She has had a mastectomy but the cancer has surfaced again. “I think it’s the stress,” she says.

    In the Gomel region, at the heart of the contaminated zone, the mood is probably bleak. There is a sense of foreboding and anxiety and that native strain of denial blend to a deadening blackness. You can feel it in the air.

    Nobody can be openly critical of the current regime. All opposition is pretty much suppressed. By all accounts, President Lukashenko is an honest

    and humble and gentle man, but all the accounts come from President Lukashenko”

  6. There will not be much 2020 olympics because the cheif quit for malfeasance

    creepy fascist posers on the internet do nothing to sslow down nuclear disasters and nuke weapons. this site is good but most are duplicitous paid trolls with other agenda or just fakes. u know wat we mean. things that tweet and retweet information peoplle know as america as america falls into nuclear-faacist oblivion like japan and ukraine belarus

    there will be a major nuclear disaster in america witin the next 4-8 months

    mass surveilance and political crackdowns are getting worse in america

    the current insane nuclear regime will stay in power and things will get much worse
