A Petition to the Congress of the United States to Declare August 6th Nuclear Disarmament Day We petition the Congress of the United States of America to declare August 6th as a national day of remembrance. August 6th,1945 is the day the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. A second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945. Sixty-three years have passed and it is time to remember that day so that there will NEVER AGAIN be a nuclear holocaust. We the signers of this petition ask that the United States Congress declare August 6th NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT DAY.


This Nuclear Disarmament Day petition is sponsored by the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, 564 Boylston Street, 2nd floor Boston, Ma. 02116 We brought this petition to the United States Congress during the week of Sept. 15, 2008. The first Nuclear Disarmament Day was observed in the U.S. in Burlington, Vermont on August 6, 2008. Please sign this petition because it is an ongoing effort until we have a national Nuclear Disarmament Day on August 6. We will again bring this petition to Congress in September, 2009.
