70th Anniversary of Hiroshima - Time to Abolish Nuclear Weapons
Media Release:  31 July 2015

The New Zealand Peace Foundation has written to Members of Parliament to ask what the government is doing on the occasion of the upcoming 70th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to prevent nuclear weapons from ever being used again. It has called on the government to take this opportunity to lead UN efforts to progress nuclear disarmament negotiations and to outlaw these weapons of mass destruction.
