Today marks the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.
Less than a month ago, Scott Ludlam was at the UN for their historic vote to ban nuclear weapons. 120 nations took part, but the likes of Australia, the US and others were absent.
As Scott said, “The nuclear-armed states have been delaying and sandbagging the rest of the world for decades. This is nine countries - nine executive governments, nine people with authority - to unleash these horrific weapons. It's about time”.
Follow the link in the comments to see Scott's full statement to the UN.
THERE ARE A TOTAL OF 15,850 NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE WORLD TODAY.
MANY OF THEM ARE FAR MORE POWERFUL THAN THE ATOMIC BOMB THAT DESTROYED HIROSHIMA.
