The City of Hiroshima Peace Declaration & Appeal to Join Mayors for Peace

On August 6, the 73rd anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Mayor Matsui of Hiroshima delivered this year’s Peace Declaration at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony. Please find attached a letter from Mayor Matsui and the Peace Declaration in PDF format for your reference.

It would be most appreciated if you would kindly help us foster and expand international public opinion through widely sharing the Peace Declaration. The Peace Declaration is also available online at the City of Hiroshima website. A video clip of Mayor Matsui delivering the Peace Declaration will be posted on the same page soon.

Mayor Matsui’s letter also asks you to help us increase the member cities of Mayors for Peace. The recruitment packet is available online at the Mayors for Peace website in multiple languages. We ask for your kind cooperation in expanding the Mayors for Peace network.

I close with best wishes for your continued good health and happiness.
