House of Parliament of Canada: Bell ringing for the first time in memory of the atomic bomb victims August 7, 5:31
On the 6th of 1975, after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, in the Canadian capital, Ottawa, the bell of the Capitol rang 75 times to commemorate the victims.
This was realized by the Canadian House of Representatives in response to a request from a civil society, the first time a bell in the Capitol Tower would ring to mourn the atomic bomb victims.
The bell will ring 75 times, starting at 8:15 a.m. local time on the 6th, local time, according to the time when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.
We will also ring the bell on the 9th, when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
``It's easy to spend this day when people are struggling with the new coronavirus, but ringing a bell continues to call for nuclear weapons,'' said William Geimer. It's been 75 years since the atomic bomb was dropped, and I want to not only pay homage to the hibakusha but also convey the effects and threats of nuclear weapons to people."
In addition, Siroko Setsuko, who has been bombed in Hiroshima and continues to carry out nuclear abolition campaign based in Canada, said, ``The effort to think about the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Canada represents an increase in awareness against nuclear weapons. I am talking."
