On 6th and 9th August we are remembering the launching, 75 years ago, of two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Over 240,000 people are estimated to have died between the time of the deflagrations and the following weeks, but their effects were to trigger illnesses, malformations and the death of thousands of people in the years to come.

Today,  9 countries hold a total of 13,400 nuclear weapons. 3,700 of those are ready to be used and most of them 100 times more powerful than the ones used over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Faced with the ineffectiveness of the existing international treaties to control and eliminate these weapons, civil society, within the framework of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, achieved the adoption by the United Nations  of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 7th July 2020.

The ratification of the treaty by 50 countries is needed (40 countries have already done so) for it to enter into force and move forward towards the total elimination of such weapons.

With the action 75 years of Hiroshima and Nagasaki #NEVERAGAIN FundiPau and the Catalan Chapter of Mayors for Peace ask for the support of the citizenry, the civil society organizations and the local and regional institutions to demand the Spanish government to sign and ratify the treaty.

If the Covid-19 pandemic has overstressed the world health systems, a single nuclear explosion would render them completely useless. Nuclear weapons are the only weapons of mass destruction which have not been banned yet and which threaten life on the the planet. We can’t allow the future of humanity to be at the hands of leaers like Trump or Putin, among others.
