Truly an amazing plea. The world needs to be freed from nuclear weaponry, this video poignantly reminds us all of this. I add my voice to theirs and yours.

Thanks for the link to million pleas....I'm not sure pleas will work but I'll give it a try. Have you seen China's new nuclear bomb today on the news? It's camouflage colored....like you could really camouflage anything that big. What will it really take to convince the "lesser known to us" that are in power to stop the violence. And who really are the "lesser known" people that have put the puppet strings on all of our government officials any way? I've read that there are 47 people in higher command than our president.

Hi Alaine,

That is a beautifully made film and I'm certain of the powerful emotions behind it. I'm less certain of the effect it will have. The Conservatives here have told the Ministry of Defence that it will have to fund a replacement for Trident submarines out of its own budget. Let's hope that's one thing for which there is insufficient funds!

Thank you Sam, Maggie's Garden & Derrick for your response.

This was obviously a topic to steer clear of for some but I make no apologies and support it wholeheartedly. We don't want to experience anything as horrific as Hiroshima ever again and I applaud ICAN and the school children of Hiroshima Japan for their initiative in this appeal.

"HELP FREE THE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

We want to make the world's longest video chain letter.

The video has been started by a group of school children from Hiroshima, Japan and is addressed to the 9 countries still in possession of nuclear weapons. We're asking people from all over the globe to upload a video clip of themselves saying the word "please". The "pleases" will then be edited into a long virtual chain letter, which will act as a petition to abolish nuclear weapons, worldwide.

The campaign is an initiative of ICAN, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons, and is being launched in this the 65th anniversary year of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Please add your voice to the campaign."
