  • Description

    Representatives of the new South Vietnamese Government and the Palestinian Liberation Organisation were among the 10,000 people who attended an anti-nuclear bomb meeting in Hiroshima, Japan, on Tuesday (5 August).

    The meeting took place in the Athletic Museum Hall on the eve of the thirtieth anniversary of the Hiroshima atom bomb blast that killed over 200,000 people in 1945.

    Twenty-two nations and organisations were represented at the meeting, which was sponsored by the Japanese Communist Party (JCP).

    The JCP has expressed extreme disappointment recently when the country's ruling Liberal Democratic Party succeeded in stalling the ratification of a nuclear treaty that would finally forbid the use of nuclear weapons to japan.

    The speeches were headed by a special message from United Nations General-Secretary, Kurt Waldheim, read by Irish Nobel Peace Prize winner, Sean McBride.

    Mr. McBride is the President of the International Peace Bureau.
