We invite you to participate on August 9th at 9 AM Pacific in an amazing virtual rally with Nagasaki survivor, Nobuaki Hanaoka, Daniel Ellsberg, Nell Myhand, Tsukuru Fors, John Burroughs, Marylia Kelley, Marshallese climate activists and more! Betsy Rose, Benjamin Mertz, and Francis Wong provide the music.
NOTES & LINK:
Northern California peace and justice groups planned this commemoration, which first ran on August 6 (see below) and will now run on August 9 in its entirety.
We had some technical problems on August 6 with the program’s live opening remarks at Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab. Among other things, Livermore Lab tried to drown out our opening with a lawnmower! But we brought truth and light and would not be “turned around” by garden equipment.
The problems have been fixed and we’re excited that the entire program will be rebroadcast at 9 AM on Monday, August 9 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB57nQAcSWQ
The August 9 program opens with “live” August 6 footage at the gates of Livermore Lab and continues with speakers and musicians who were prerecorded. A few of the opening remarks may be difficult to hear. Please listen carefully and stay tuned for the inspiring prerecorded session that follows.
The full program runs about 1 hour 50 minutes. Written transcripts will be available on our website soon.
