WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE for PEACE and FREEDOM SUPPORTS ARTICLE 9 in NORTH AMERICA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

THE END OF WAR-MAKING AS A POLITICAL TOOL IS IN SIGHT!

 

THE WOMENS’ INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM

 

VOTES TO SUPPORT AND PROMOTE BOSTON FILMMAKER’S RESOLUTION TO AMEND ARTICLE 9 OF THE JAPANESE CONSTITUTION TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

 

 

David Rothauser of Memory Productions has produced a new and relevant film about survivors of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  In view of current events in Japan and the issue of nuclear radiation world-wide, we believe that the film will generate  large audiences wherever shown. There is a new awakening among world citizens of the effects of nuclear radiation on younger generations today and in the future. “Hibakusha, Our Life to Live,” faces this issue and deals with it from a past, present and future perspective. First screened at the United Nations last May, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon requested copies for the UN. It subsequently played in Kyoto, Hiroshima, Los Angeles, Seattle, Princeton, Boston, Rio de Janeiro and four cities in Georgia and South Carolina including the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta.

 

Article 9, written by U.S. occupation forces in Japan in 1946 declares that Japan shall never again make war.  Japan has been at peace for 66 years. Not one soldier lost, not one civilian lost to war-making. With Japan and the U.S. both embracing Article 9 they can lead a coalition to support the United Nations to abolish war-making on a global scale.

The abolition of nuclear weapons/power and all weapons of mass destruction will follow as a natural course of events.

 

With the threat of nuclear annihilation of life on earth, war-making has become obsolete.

 

 

 

SUPPORT ARTICLE 9!  THE END OF WAR IS IN SIGHT!
