Urge President Obama to Visit Hiroshima in May

Facebook Twitter Addthis

President ObamaEarlier today, John Kerry became the first sitting U.S. Secretary of State to visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and lay flowers at the memorial cenotaph. Secretary Kerry's words indicate that he was moved by the experience, calling it "gut wrenching" and "a stark, harsh compelling reminder…of our obligation to end the threat of nuclear weapons."

However, the United States continues to rely heavily on nuclear weapons and is planning to spend at least $1 trillion over the next 30 years to "modernize" all aspects of its nuclear arsenal, including the warheads, submarines, missiles, bombers, production facilities and command and control infrastructure.

Please encourage President Obama to visit Hiroshima when he is in Japan next month for the G7 Summit. Actions speak louder than words. That's why we are encouraging President Obama not to come to Hiroshima empty-handed.

Send a message to President Obama today and encourage him to become the first sitting U.S. President to visit Hiroshima, and to make significant substantive contributions to nuclear disarmament while he is there. Such actions could include:

  • Removing the U.S. nuclear arsenal from high-alert status, and encouraging all other nuclear-armed nations to do the same;
  • Initiating negotiations for global nuclear disarmament as required by Article VI of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT);
  • Announcing further nuclear reductions with Russia, as use of even a fraction of the current arsenals could cause nuclear winter, resulting in severe climate change leading to global famine;
  • Canceling the $1 trillion, 30-year plan to completely overhaul the U.S. nuclear weapons complex.
