Hiroshima to Nagasaki day fast
Endorsed by Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Network for Peace and Trident Ploughshares
The idea is that a water only, public fast takes place in each county or region in England, Scotland and Wales. Press work will be done both locally and at a national level. Each fast will begin and end with a remembrance ceremony. What fasters do, how much time they spend in a public area, and other details are up to individual areas to decide.
The basic message is that:
Using nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was appalling, unacceptable, must be remembered and must never happen again.
The UK’s plans to work with the US to build a new generation of "small" nuclear weapons in order to be able to use them are unacceptable, a breach of the NPT, and must be stopped.
We therefore call on the government to
Stop breaching the NPT
Stop building the laser at Aldermaston
Terminate the Mutual Defence Agreement with the US
Get rid of Trident
Not to replace it with other nuclear weapons systems.
