Note that 4:15 PM local time Sunday is 8:15 AM August 6 in Hiroshima, the precise time the A-bomb exploded.
Expect great singers, musicians and speakers who will connect us with Japanese A-bomb survivors and other radiation victims at the site where the U.S. is spending billions of taxdollars on new and modified nuclear weapons. With symbolic art, speech and nonviolent action, you are invited to come and “foreclose on the bomb.” This year’s Hiroshima commemoration will highlight the economic reality of ever-increasing nuclear weapons spending
while people’s basic needs go unmet.
The commemoration will be held in a
grassy area, under shade trees, with a procession to the Livermore Lab following. Carpools
and a special bus pick-up from the metropolitan Bay Area are being planned. Check
