The U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki seventy-six years ago on August 6 and 9, 1945. The explosions created shadows where there had been people. On many levels nuclear shadows have been with us each day since, and they are with us today.
On August 6 and 9, 2021, Tri-Valley CAREs and a coalition of Bay Area peace and justice groups will commemorate the past and act to change the future.
We invite you to join us. We will stand with Hibakusha (A-bomb survivors) to say “never again” to nuclear annihilation. And we will dedicate ourselves to the global abolition of nuclear weapons.
This year’s event will span both anniversary dates; there will be a short program at 9 AM on August 6 and a longer one at 9 AM on August 9 (all times local). This year’s commemoration will be a “hybrid” event, featuring a virtual rally with music and speakers and a limited in-person program at Livermore Lab, one of two places where the U.S. designs all of its nuclear weapons.
Planning for these August peace events is ongoing. Visit our website regularly for updates. And “save the date” today. Here is our initial announcement. Feel free to download and share with others who may be interested.
