No More Hiroshimas – No More Nagasakis

Zum 71. Mal jähren sich heuer die einzigen, kriegsmäßig eingesetzten Atombombenabwürfe über den japanischen Städten Hiroshima und Nagasaki durch die US-Luftwaffe am 6. August bzw. 9. August 1945. Hunderttausende Menschen starben sofort – viele weitere erkrankten und leiden bis heute an den Folgen dieses Infernos.

This year marks the 71st anniversary of the only time nuclear warheads were dropped, the bombings of the Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki executed by the US Air Force on August 6th and August 9th 1945. The consequence of this inferno were the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and victims suffering from resulting illnesses up today.

Social Media Activities

#HiroshimaDay #NagasakiDay Tweetmap

The Tweetmap tracks twitter communication on nuclear weapons and nuclear disarmament in realtime and displays the 1000 most recent tweets on a world map according to the tweet’s geolocation, if provided or else the twitter user’s profile location.
The Tweetmap is a useful advocacy tool, as we can see not only what governments do, but what a variety of actors say: civil society, opinion leaders, the wider public, media, think-tanks, experts, scientists all over the world send condensed messages out into the world, and we capture them on a single page.
For the purpose of the commemoration of Hiroshima & Nagasaki a special marker was added tracking #HiroshimaDay and #NagasakiDay
