In the earlier period of the manufacture of war weapons, many nations preferred the use of nuclear weapons, which they saw to be more effective in both the cold war and world wars I and II.
This has now brought about the testing of nuclear weapons in both India, Germany, Austria, the U.S.A., China, and Russia, and other parts of the world that have successfully launched their own nuclear weapons.
Aside from that, the use also brought the body that is to control the major use of nuclear weapons among nations that produce them, known as the Nuclear Club, which is responsible for assigning what kind of nuclear weapons to produce, use, and material used in producing them. The club was formed in May 1974 and had its first meeting the following year.
However, there are many recorded protests against the use of this weapon because its proper use and the important means by which it was produced are more violent than one might imagine.
On June 12, 1982, in New York City’s Central Park, marked the year citizens protested more than expected and was attended by one million delegates from among the majority of nations that have recognized nuclear weapons as their major war weapons, all of whom arrived to protest over the poor conduct of national use of such dangerous initiatives.Keep reading to get details of the protest yourself.
An Event That Shows The Use Of Nuclear Weapons
There are many events that prove the negative display of nuclear weapons. This includes World Wars I and II and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, which took lives and devastated properties, as well as affecting the economic growth of the country as they continued in their kind.
Despite the fact that both US and German leaders have previously expressed their opposition to the use of nuclear weapons, the same is still done during domestic and international war incidents.
When Nuclear Weapons Become A Source Of Controversy Among World Nations
From historical records, when nuclear weapons began to be an issue in the world, it was in the late 1970s when France and Germany began to march in protest over wars and the use of dangerous ammunition against each other in battle.
As they kept on increasing countless times during the 1970s and 80s, the intellectual demonstration of atomic weapons in other hands led to armfulls of war ammunition.
The next year, the protest recorded a number of more than a thousand, with the extention of protest down to 1975. This further prompted other protests that led to the one million delegate protest in New York.
Meanwhile, the first protest that turned into a minor demonstration was the response to the United States hydrogen bomb, which was accomplished with the use of Operation Crossroads in 1946, which is said to have affected lives.
Another incredible protest that moved the world was the 1961 protest at the height of the Cold War, which involved 50,000 women who demonstrated a peace protest as they struck for peace in the United States of America.
From the middle of 1970 to 1979, there were countless protests in response to nuclear weapons, as evidenced by the response to the Three Mile Island accident, including the New York protest, with high numbers of participants responding to each protest, according to their records in history.
Also, the response to the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, that is, after the demonstration of protest in New York City’s Central Park, is the main content of this article. Even with all this, the use of nuclear weapons keeps on going viral in battles that seem severe between countries.
The United States Is Among The Major Arms Manufacturers Of Nuclear Weapons
As a world power nation, the United States didn’t cease to see that they produced much more than those that were ahead of them. This meant that they hadn’t lost competitiveness with other nations. Most of the protests that have happened have all taken place in the United States.
The women’s strike for peace took place in 60 cities in the United States as the first of its kind to be observed by women alone. This includes the three-mile accident protest.
A review of the list of protests that Americans have been involved in throughout their history shows that they all occurred in the context of fighting against nuclear weapons and can be described as anti-nuclear weapons protests. And while this happened, it tried to shut down causal movement, shops, and every other important place, which some time with extension could affect the economic growth of the country where it occurs.
The New York Central Park Protest
As said earlier, delegates from nations that have experienced the negative impact of arms began to protest against such a dangerous weapon. This protest took place on June 12, 1982, in New York City’s Central Park and was attended by one million delegates, including the United States, Bangladesh, and Zambia.
At the end of the most peaceful and kind protest that has been recorded so far, a treaty was signed by the United Nations, including the official delegate that made the protest active.
