On the anniversary of the terrible bombing of Nagasaki…

My article on activism for nuclear disarmament “Canadian cities and citizens are demanding nuclear disarmament” was published with a different title in three newspapers today across Canada (Hamilton Spectator, Waterloo Record and Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald): www.thechronicleherald.ca/opinion/national-perspectives/tamara-lorincz-with-nuclear-risks-on-rise-canadians-must-fight-for-disarmament-339730/
