Voices opposing A- and H- bombs

8/Signatures gathered nationwide demanding a ban on atomic and hydrogen bomb tests
The incident started movements against atomic and hydrogen bombs around Japan that spread around the world. Around the country, resolutions and petition drives called for a ban on testing of atomic and hydrogen bombs. Lord Bertrand Russell, philosopher, and physicist Albert Einstein formed the core of a group of scientists that issued the Russell-Einstein Manifesto. Warning about the escalating arms race, and the danger of global contamination from nuclear tests, the Manifesto gave credence to the voices and movement calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
