Pressenza – By definition nuclear weapons are genocidal, xenophobic and racist

PZ: In your presentation you gave the impression that by definition a nuclear weapon is racist.  Please can you explain more?

HRJ: So nuclear weapons are problematic because by nature they are genocidal. If we think about the idea of the willingness of a group of people, or a nation, to destroy in whole, or in part, another group of people, or another nation; to obliterate their culture, their way of life; to destroy their religious, ethnic, racial identities.  This is the very definition of genocide and that’s xenophobic and racist.

PZ: You also talked about the disproportionate effect of nuclear weapons on indigenous people…

HRJ: Countries like the UK, the US and France have unapologetically dropped their bombs, their nuclear waste and tested on non-white populations in Africa and Asia-Pacific, also on poor people’s and indigenous people’s lands in the US and Australia.  These countries that call themselves nuclear responsible states have done so without acknowledging or giving any reparation for people living in Kiribati, in Fiji, in French Polynesia and the Marshall Islands, where we still see inexplicably high levels of cancers and also birth defects and uninhabitable spaces.

  1. I am a conscientious and devoted antinuclear activist. I tried to work in SGI as an antinuclear activist! Hayley can change her ways. She can give up this facade as others have! I was active with SONGS. I still am. I am a Former SGI member. I applaud sgi people, who are truly devoted to ICAN.

    There are a few things people should know about Soka Gakkai International and their leader Ikeda.
    I am still a practicing Nichiren Buddhist. Sgi is a lypractice of Nichiren Buddhism.

    Though I appladed SGI and its laybuddhist ministry, something went wrong with it. It got too involved in money and politics. Like evangelicals have in America. Power corrupts.

    SOKA GAKKAI runs the Komeito Political party in Japan. The Komeito Party, is allied with Abe’s conservative LDP. The Komeito and Soka Gakkai keep Shinzo Abe in Power!
    1. SHINZO ABE, PUSHED THE FASCIST SECRECY ACT IN JAPAN THAT PROSECUTES AND CENSORS, HONEST DISCOURSE ABOUT FUKUSHIMA. IT IS WHY REFUGEES ARE MOVED BACK TO FUKUSHIMA
    MANY OF TEPCOS EXECUTIVES AT THE THE TIME OF FUKUSHIMA AND NOW, ARE SOKA GAKKAI MEMBERS

    2. SHINZO ABE pushed to have the constitution changed, TO ALLOW JAPAN TO HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS. SOKA GAKKAI AND IKEDA HAVE DONE NOTHING TO STOP THIS AND IF ANYTHING HAVE ENCORAGED IT!
    Komeito is the political organ of Soka Gakkai International. They have done nothing to stop Abe from opening reactors or changing the constitution. In fact they are one of the main reasons Shinzo Abe stays in power!

    3. Shinzo Abe and Soka Gakkai-Komeito actively support re-opening old dangerous reactors in Japan! They support, using inexperienced kids to clean-up fukushima. They actively support the olympics in Fukushima.

    For more about Komeito and SGI go to Mark Rogows Eagle Peak Blog .

  2. It makes me sad that you would not print my comment. Hayley Ramsey-Jones has little to do with ICAN. She is a fraud and a front for Soka Gakkai. I was a member of Soka Gakkai for seven years. Not once, did my chapter contribute anything substantial to Nuclear Disarmament.
    SGI RUNS KOMEITO. KOMEITO KEEPS THE RACIST, MILITARIST-PRONUKE: SHINZO ABE IN POWER!

    ABE IS COMMITTED TO THE NUCLEAR ARMAMENT OF JAPAN AND CHANGING THE JAPANESE CONSTITUTION TO DO SO

    ABE CONTINUES THE FASCIST SECRECY ACT AND SOKA GAKKAI SUPPORTS IT

    ABE CONTINUES TO USE REFUGEES, YOUNG PEOPLE, HOMELESS TO CLEAN UP FUKUSHIMA. THAT IS GENOCIDE. HOW CAN THIS FRAUDULENT INTERLOPER, HAYLEY RAMSEY-JONES, WHO HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH ICAN, talk about genocide with a straight face?

    ABE CONTINUES TO PUSH FUKUSHIMA REFUGEES BACK TO FUKUSHIMA.

    MOST OF THE HIGHUP EXECUTIVES AT TEPCO, WHEN FUKUSHIMA BLEW, WERE SOKA GAKKAI MEMBERS
