Sixty-nine years ago this month, August 1945, we dropped two nuclearatom bombs on two cities- instantly incinerating over 110,000 men, women and children.

Sixty-nine years on, August 2014, we continue the threat of dropping nuclear bombs - not just on cities, but also on countries and continents...with a capability of wiping out everything that lives on this planet, three times over.

Cities have already achieved the status of “Nuclear-Free Zones” - including Manchester, Brisbane, Sydney, and Vancouver....

Whole countries too - including Austria, Estonia, Italy, Japan and NewZealand.Crawley Borough Council - a possible future City Council - is called upon again to do the same....for our children’s sake, and their future.
