Paying respect to the hibakusha, to Australian Aboriginals, and all people harmed by the nuclear industry

KA Zza with Cat Beaton and 18 others. 5 Aug 20
This day, 16 years ago together with a wonderful group of new friends and family, we walked into the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. After nine months of walking Australia and Japan – witnessing, listening and learning of the devastating impacts of the nuclear industry – uranium mining, nuclear weapons testing, radioactive waste, nuclear power and nuclear weapons.
Every step we heard the very real threat to Aboriginal land, water and culture and the impacts on local communities, workers and families. This walk changed my life. Today, I am fortunate to work with extraordinary people who live with this threat daily, and who continue to challenge and contest this industry at every opportunity.
I pay my deepest respects to the memories of those who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki 75 years ago from the nuclear bombs and express my profound gratitude to the hibakusha or survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to the people around the world who have been affected by the nuclear weapons industry for their tireless efforts to remind the world of the inhumanity of the horrifying weapons of mass destruction.
