‘Non-violence – A Style of Politics for Peace’

Does violence perpetuate violence? asks HOT’s Zelly Restorick. Has the use of violence taught you anything? Is violence a necessary element within human beings? An over-active attribute in some members of our human race? Physical violence? Mental and emotional violence? Is violence the only way? Non-rhetorical questions. Genuinely and sincerely asked.

Hiroshima Day 2016

Hiroshima Day 2017

Hastings Against War will commemorate those who lost their lives in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 with a ceremony at the boating lake in Alexandra Park on Sunday 6 August. An estimated 185,000 people perished when US airforce planes bombed the cities, dying as a result of the initial blast, due to fires sparked by the bombs, and as a result of radiation-sickness caused by the explosions. John Enefer writes.
