    In 1995, from Ashkelon Prison, Mordechai Vanunu noted: "A radioactive cloud consumed rubbed out Hiroshima...A live nuclear test sentenced you. A nuclear laboratory…children women trees animals in and under a nuclear mushroom…burning… burned…flattened to ground radioactive ash-Hiroshima...Nuclear weapons gamblers win against you…Hollywood doesn't know you - you are not a Jewish Holocaust." To coincide with Hiroshima Day, an International Petition calling for Vanunu’s immediate full release to freedom was launched. The only way Vanunu can harm Israel is with bad PR and the longer Israel holds him, the greater his legend and international compassion will grow. eileen fleming WeAreWideAwake producer "30 Minutes" and "13 Minutes with Vanunu"
