Protest letter against the US subcritical nuclear test (April 7, 2000)

April 7, 2000

The Honorable William Jefferson Clinton
The President

Letter of Protest

On April 6, your country conducted its eleventh sub-critical nuclear test in its underground testing site in Nevada. With various countries and NGOs energetically preparing efforts to prevent nuclear proliferation and further nuclear disarmament at the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty) Review Conference just around the corner, your country's insistence on pushing ahead with sub-critical nuclear tests flies in the face of universal hopes for nuclear abolition. It is truly an outrage. On behalf of the people of Hiroshima, I vehemently protest.

The US and the other nuclear weapons states must take a hard look at the recent backlash against the trend toward nuclear disarmament, recollect that the nuclear weapons states promised to strive for that disarmament under Article 6 of the NPT, in part to prevent further moves toward nuclear proliferation, and actively work toward the abolition of nuclear weapons.

The city of Hiroshima demands that the United States immediately halt all sub-critical nuclear testing and take a central role in establishing the concrete process by which we will eliminate nuclear weapons in the 21st century.

Tadatoshi Akiba
Mayor
The City of Hiroshima
