It has been 76 years since the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 6 days.

The spread of the new coronavirus has made it difficult to mourn as usual, but on the 6th, the atomic bombed area, Hiroshima, was wrapped in a prayer to mourn the victims and appealed for the realization of a world without nuclear weapons at home and abroad. I will send it to.

On the 6th, 1976, when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a peace memorial ceremony was held in Hiroshima City from 8:00 am, including representatives of the atomic bomb survivors and bereaved families, Prime Minister Suga, and representatives of about 90 countries. I will attend.



Some of them were finally recognized as survivors after the state had forgotten their appeal in the so-called "black rain" trial that fell shortly after the atomic bomb was dropped.



At this ceremony, due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, there will be no general attendee seats as in last year, and the number of attendees is expected to be about 800, which is less than 10% of the average year.



At the ceremony, a list of 328,929 people who died or were confirmed dead in the past year, including a total of 4,800 people, will be placed in the A-bomb memorial monument.



Then, at 8:15 am when the atomic bomb was dropped, all the attendees offered a silent prayer.



Regarding the world's nuclear disarmament, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which bans the development, manufacture, and use of nuclear weapons, came into effect in January, but nuclear-weapon states and countries under the nuclear umbrella, such as Japan, have not participated. ..



At the ceremony, Mayor Matsui of Hiroshima City will ask the Government of Japan to take the thoughts of the A-bomb survivors in good faith, participate in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and firmly bridge the gap between nuclear-weapon states and non-nuclear-weapon states.



The average age of A-bomb survivors is now close to 84 years old, and as the aging of the population continues, the issue is how to pass on the memories of the A-bomb survivors to the next generation.



On the 6th, the atomic bombed area, Hiroshima, will be wrapped in a prayer in memory of the victims and will issue a proceeding to realize a peaceful world without nuclear weapons at home and abroad.
