Roger Cole, Chair of the Peace & Neutrality Alliance said:
"Irish CND is holding its annual Hiroshima Day Commemoration on Wednesday August 6 at 1.00pm in Merrion Square, Dublin 2
80,000 men women and children were killed in a few minutes. Radiation ensured that to total killed rose to between 90-140,000.
As we watch the mass murder of the men, women and children of Gaza today we remember Hiroshima and remember that then, just as today, the murder of men women and children was justified because a state had the right "to defend itself" and wonder how many men women and children will be killed in Gaza before our Fine Gael/Labour Government stops saying that Israel has the right to "defend itself". There are nearly 1.8 million people in Gaza, will they continue to say Israel has the right to "defend itself" until 80,000 are killed or will they wait until 140,000 are killed?"
