August 6 Peace Witness

Commemorating the U.S. Nuclear Bombings

of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Dear Friends,
Please join with the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker and other peacemakers for a nonviolent peace witness to commemorate the U.S. nuclear bombings of Japan on August 6 and August 9, 1945, and to call for the abolition of all nuclear weapons. See details below. Please share with other friends.

During this time of commemoration, we pray and act in solidarity with peacemakers worldwide calling for nuclear abolition, including those in Japan, the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (OREPA) who will be at the Nuclear Weapons Complex at Oak Ridge, TN, Tri-Valley Cares and other groups who will be at Lawrence Livermore Labs in CA, all those attending the National Campaign for Nonviolence national conference in Santa Fe, NM and who will be at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and all who are participating in the International Fast for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons.

 

Seventy years ago the U.S. government did the “unspeakable” and dropped atomic bombs on the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Please join in a nonviolent witness as we seek to remember the pain, repent the sin and reclaim the future.
