The past months of August and September signal moments that remind us of the nuclear horror and call on us all for a more determined action in defence of peace and disarmament –on August 6 and 9 we evoke the US nuclear bombings on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in 1945, and their dramatic consequences, which persist to this day; on August 29 we celebrate the International Day against Nuclear Tests; on 21 September the International Day of Peace; and on 26 September the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.
