A wish of 800 mothers at One Million Mothers gathering in Tokyo : making a world without nuclear

Under the blue summer sky in Tokyo, in front of  the Primie Minister's office bulding, 800 mothers and families together took an oath to march towrad a goal: making a world without nuclear.  The gatherring of citizens, includng children, was organized by One Million Mothers project on July 7, the day of annual star festival, to  deliver letters and wisehs from all around the world to the Prime Minster Abe (pictures took by the organizer are here).

 

Here is the oath they took together: 

 

 
"One Million Mothers - Tanabata Declaration -"
 
We choose
A world without nuclear power plants
A world in which no one is exposed to radiation
 
We protect
All children
All living things on the earth
 
We stand up
With love, wisdom and courage
With all people around the world
 
We sing
The song of lives that will not end
A song of hope, telling of the dawn
 
We walk
The way to live with life
The way to help each other to be alive
We, "One Million Mothers", are going to set some candidates at the election on the July 21st, to elect some Diet members who share the same wishes which are no nuclear power and no more exposing people to radiation.
We are going to gain the power back to rule the country with creativity and love and freedom.
And we swear to fulfill our wishes with our own hands.
We choose
A world without nuclear power plants
A world that doesn't expose people to radiation
 
We continue to love
Our dear children
Our dear planet
