Dear 8 billion people on earth!
Please sign the petition at the URL below and help us to realize a world without killing and violence as soon as possible.
We hope that you will support the purpose of the Hiroshima World Peace Concert and help us to deliver our message to the parties involved in the conflict and to the world.
In response to the recent clashes between Palestine (Hamas) and Israel and other conflicts around the world, we demand an immediate end to the bloodshed!
I, like many of you, have been tormented by the news that precious human lives are being trampled upon again so easily by the terrorist acts and kidnappings of Hamas and the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza in response to them.
While Putin’s brutal acts of violence against Ukraine have not ended, another catastrophe has occurred to shake the world, and we are again moving far away from building world peace.
A strong message and action must be taken from Japan, the only country to have experienced atomic bombings and a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, to immediately stop the killing and violence.
To those involved in the conflict and to the world’s 8 billion people!
No conflict can be resolved by people killing people.
Hate and resentment will remain, and it will continue forever as the spark of conflict will never be extinguished.
We want to hand our children a peaceful and happy future, don’t we?
Can you bear to see our fellow neighbors, including our children, crying and screaming?
Immediately stop the murderous acts!
Stop the acts of violence!
Resolve everything through discussion!
Isn’t this the only way for humanity to grow?
There is no winner in the act of killing each other.
Those who immediately stop killing and violence and choose to resolve issues through discussion alone will be the true winners, the next generation of human beings who have raised their spirituality to the next level.
Please have the courage to stop killing and violence!
Once again, to the leaders of the countries and organizations at the time of the conflict!
Please listen to the message from Hiroshima, which knows the suffering of hell!
Stop the killing and violence and the world will praise you!
Deep in our hearts, we all want a tomorrow without killing and violence and with smiles on children’s faces.
I beg you to stay calm and break the cycle of resentment and hatred in our generation!
Then a wonderful and happy world will surely begin from tomorrow!
Let us adults take action now!
Please stop the killing and violence immediately!
Don’t hate others, ethnic groups, and one other!
What we must hate is murder and violence!
Stop killing each other immediately!
Let us speak out against it first!
All peoples, all religions, all human beings must stop killing each other now, and never again! Never again! This one goal must be achieved with the combined efforts of 8 billion people!
◆Hiroshima World Peace Concert
We are going to hold a free live concert and distribution from Hiroshima (in front of the Atomic Bomb Dome) on November 26th to appeal to the Middle East and the world to immediately stop the killing each other.
We will show our strong will for building peace from Hiroshima, by streaming live music and messages from musicians who strongly desire peace, as well as prayers and messages for peace from bishops and other religious leaders from the conflict areas.
We believe that we have entered an era when humanity can have a spirituality of great kindness, where people do not kill, violence is rejected, and everything can be resolved through discussion!
We must strive to accelerate our efforts!
It is time for each of us to fulfill our responsibility as one of the 8 billion pieces of the puzzle of world peace!
