August 6 (Anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and the feast of the Transfiguation): Nonviolent witness at the Pentagon and Udvar Hazy Museum where the Enola Gay is displayed. Times to be decided at the August 5 gathering.
August 9 (Anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Nagasaki): 12 Noon – 1:00 p.m. nonviolent witness at the White House where we will be joined by two Hibakusha (A-bomb survivors) who will offer testimony. We will also remember the anniversary of the martrydom of Franz Jagerstatter and Edith Stein. We will meet at Dorothy Day Catholic Worker @ 10:00 a.m. and then go to the White House for a nonviolent witness.
We sincerely hope that you can make time in these days to join sisters and brothers in saying:
NO MORE HIROSHIMAS!
NO MORE NAGASAKIS!
NO MORE WAR – WAR NEVER AGAIN!
ABOLISH WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION FOREVER!
TRANSFORMATION NOT ANNIHILATION!
CONVERT OUR WAR ECONOMY TO MEET HUMAN NEEDS AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT!
Please let us know if you can be with us.
