50 Aniversario del Tratado de Tlatelolco
Aquí en Tlatelolco fue abierto a firma el 14 de febrero de 1967 el primer tratado internacional, en un área densamente poblada, que prohíbe la armas nucleares.

Los 33 paises de Latinoamérica y el Caribe han demostrado que la única manera de eliminar el problema de las armas nucleares, que constituyen fuerzas que provocarían la destrucción del mundo, será el esfuerzo solidario que todos realicemos para inaugurar, con la energía impulsora de la esperanza, una nuevas era en la historia de la humanidad.

Placa develada en conmemoración del 50 aniversario del Tratado de Tlatelolco y en homenaje a los 60 años de la declaración ciudadana a favor de un mundo libre de armas nucleares hecha el 8 de septiembre de 1957 por Josei Toda, segundo Presidente de la Soka Gakkai.
