World Conference against A & H Bombs
Faisal Baloch (Pakistan)
Salute to the martyrs of 9th August 1945.
I am Faisal Baloch representative of my nation, this is great honor
for me I am addressing to the people of Nagasaki and on behalf of
Pakistani nation condemned the harassment of 9th August 1945 event.
We cannot forget the harassment and terror of August 09th 1945,
when USA dropped atomic bomb on the innocent citizens of Nagasaki
and one of the ancient civilizations a gplace of loveh of the world.
The land, which is famous for its beauty, was chosen for atomic
testing. The blast jolted Nagasaki and many beautiful things in
the hearts and dreams of innocent people of Nagasaki burned into
Nuclear weapons ARE a tragedy, the testing, and their barbaric
use against innocent people. The continued existence of nuclear
weapons is a tragedy. The rogue states spend billion dollars a year
to maintain its nuclear war fighting capability. At the same time,
as people hunger and are not fed, people are cold and not clothed.
They are an abomination, a threat to the future of humankind.
We stand today on the brink of hyper-proliferation and perhaps of
repeating the third actual use of nuclear weapons. I can assure
you that the path we are walking leads to unspeakable violence and
misery for us all. I am well aware that we must do more than talk
about this danger. For over fifty years, peace activists of the
world have been raising the alarm about nuclear weapons.
We cannot sit silently watching it happen. We must let our leaders
know, first and foremost, that we demand immediate freedom from
the nuclear threat. Nuclear weapons are heinous, cruel, inhumane
weapons that threaten our entire species. Nothing could be more
obvious than the illegality of these weapons, and they should obviously
be banned. Therefore, on behalf of the human family, we demand a
complete and total ban on all nuclear weapons everywhere. We demand
that all nuclear weapons be taken off of hair- trigger alert immediately
and all nuclear weapons deployed on foreign territory be withdrawn.
We demand that no more time be wasted postponing or extending the
timeline for nuclear disarmament.
All of us in this event, blessed with extremely high levels of
prosperity and education, are duty-bound to educate the rest of
the population in our respective homelands about the nuclear danger.
We must inform them and mobilize them for their own protection.
It is our responsibility to launch a massive, grassroots campaign
that will make it clear that the people of all nations will accept
only leaders who undertake unequivocally to eliminate nuclear weapons.
Our immediate target is nuclear weapons, but our long-term aim
is a new world order. In this new world, no man is foolish enough
to kill or be killed to defend his master's wealth or ego. We seek
a world in which no man, woman or child goes to bed wondering whether
he or she will live through the hunger, pestilence, or violence
of the next day; a world in which we look around this conference
and see not murdering, thieving enemies against whom we have to
defend ourselves but brothers and sisters on whom our own safety,
security, survival and enjoyment depend. Let us work together for
the sake of our children and grandchildren. Let us ban nuclear weapons
Let me take this opportunity to appeal the International humanitarian
organizations, as well as, to the organizing committee of World
Conference against A & H Bombs to make it possible to find out
venues to compensate the Hibakushas of sub-continent, and to conduct
research study to measure the impacts of radiation in the particular
