Kazumi Matsui, the Mayor of Hiroshima City has written to OBSIVEN telling us about the Peace Memorial ceremony conducted on the 74th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

He also sent a copy of the new City of Hiroshima’s Peace Declaration with the hope that we would share with all our people. The peoples of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are amongst the very first nuclear survivor communities in the world and in their footsteps, many other brothers and sisters sadly tread. Below is the declaration in full.
