The Hiroshima/Nagasaki Accord

We, the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Charter for Compassion, Religions for Peace and the United Religions Initiative have come together, for the first time to issue The Hiroshima/Nagasaki Accord which will be delivered on August 6, 2020, acknowledging the 75th Anniversary of the atomic bombings of both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Now more than ever we feel urgency concerning the alarming actions of the nuclear nations. Walking away from safeguarding Treaties. Stepping back from verification. Modernizing nuclear weapons. Abandoning serious negotiations. And threatening to begin testing again. These trends constitute a calamitous threat to the entire world. So, we are speaking up together and looking for others to ally with us. It’s is up to each of us to take positive action that will reverse our race toward nuclear annihilation.
