Understorey: Setsuko’s Counting on us

Wednesday 5th August / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

70 years ago, the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki disappeared under the veil of mushroom clouds, vaporised thanks to two coordinated nuclear blasts.

Setsuko Thurlow, a schoolgirl buried under the Hiroshima rubble, tells her hibakusha story to a gathering in Vienna of ambassadors and activists from around the world.

Australia’s own Ambassador for Disarmament was there, but was unauthorised to grant Understorey an interview about where Australia stands on the issue of a nuclear weapons treaty.

Setsuko asks us all why these indiscriminate nuclear weapons of mass destruction should be tolerated for a moment longer.

“I am counting on you,” she tells the packed audience in the Hofburg Palace, to ban the most genocidal weapon of them all.
