Hiroshima Day Rally and Action at LLNL

On the 69th Anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, we invite all who seek peace and justice and a world free of nuclear weapons to gather at the location where scientists are developing new and modified nuclear weapons. Each weapon type designed at Livermore Lab involves new and “upgraded” features able to rain unimaginable devastation on a moment’s notice anywhere on Earth. The Lab’s budget request reveals that 89% of the money(more than a billion dollars) will go to nuclear weapons activities in the coming year.

Location: Come to the Livermore nuclear weapons laboratory’s northwest corner, at Vasco and Patterson Pass Roads in Livermore. There will be parking set up at the rally site and vanpools from the Dublin-Pleasanton BART station (call 925-443-7148 to reserve a seat).
