WILPF Statement on the 63rd anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

More details on Livermore protest

In Livermore, people are asked to gather at the northwest side of the Lab at 10:30am, and traverse the “nuclear aze”, a huge structure created to teach about the inextricable link between nuclear weapons and nuclear power and the direct impacts of the nuclear fuel cycle on local communities. At 10:02am people will gather for a moment of silence followed by music from Kaylah Marin and an address from the Keynote speaker, Reverend Nobuaki Hanaoka, a survivor of the U.S. atomic bombing of Nagasaki.

From the Tri-Valley Cares Flyer: Why at Livermore Lab?

Livermore is home to one of the two Labs responsible for designing and developing very warhead in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Today, the lab is working on modifications to existing warheads and plans to create new, so-called “Reliable Replacement Warheads.” Livermore is the place to demand that the U.S. lead the world towards nuclear disarmament, not more Hiroshimas and Nagasakis.

The nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki initially killed about 220,000 people, mostly civilians. The lingering effects of heat, blast and radiation from these two bombs continue to kill and harm people today. Sixty-three years after these bombings, with the United States poised to develop new nuclear weapons, the specter of nuclear weapons in the hands of “rogue” states has become the number 1 U.S. excuse for waging war.

We invite those who cherish peace and justice to join us in honoring the victims and survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and giving voice to their demand: NEVER AGAIN!
