PRESS RELEASE: Atomic Bomb Survovors from Hiroshima, Japan Speak to UC Regents (tags)

Two survivors of the US atomic bombing from Hiroshima, Japan spoke yesterday to the University of California Board of Regents, who manage the nations two premiere nuclear weapons laboratories at Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore. The survivors, known in Japanese as hibakusha, spoke at the UC Irvine campus during the Regent’s meeting public comment period to speak of their experiences surviving the atomic bomb, and of their friends and family members who did not survive the attack, with the officials in charge of the institution which created that bomb, and to implore the Regents to end management of the nuclear weapons labs, which continue to create new nuclear weapons.

Their flesh melting off, many perished while looking for water to ease their suffering.
