50 Hold Nuclear Protest at Pakistani Consulate

About 50 peace activists protested nuclear testing in front of the Pakistani Consulate on Wilshire Boulevard on Friday and then met with Consul General Tariq Azizuddin.

The demonstrators condemned nuclear tests by India and Pakistan in recent weeks.

Among the protesters was James Yamazaki, the physician in charge of the U.S. Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission, which was sent to Nagasaki, Japan, in 1949. "One misstep could be such a holocaust," he said.
