We* invite you to our* hiroshimanagasaki75.org commemorative event. Saturday August 8, Payson Park 2-3 PM.
"We are part of a group of organizations and individuals working together:
--to mark the anniversaries of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the Trinity nuclear test.
--to highlight the voices of those affected by nuclear weapons: the hibakusha, downwind communities, nuclear workers, uranium workers, military personnel, and their families who were exposed to harmful and sometimes deadly levels of ionizing radiation and other toxins.
--to press our leaders to take the actions necessary to ensure nuclear weapons are never used again
--to negotiate in good faith the global elimination of these most devastating weapons of mass destruction."
"Survivors, cities, and front-line communities persevere, embody and practice resilience, and fight for a safer, livable, and just world through their resistance. At the same time, the weapons remain as well and continue to threaten our global community."
