A Call For Peace: Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki

Sunday, August 7, 2022


A CALL FOR PEACE NOW MORE THAN EVER: REMEMBERING HIROSHIMA & NAGASAKI

Sunday August 7, 2022 - Easthampton, MA 


August 6 and 9, 2022. will mark the 77th anniversary of the U.S.'s automatic bombing of two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bombings resulted in the immediate deaths of between 129,000 and 226,000 people, with many thousands dying later from radiation exposure. We will show solidarity with the remaining survivors, and call for a rapid phase-out of nuclear weapons, with funding for urgent social needs, not weapons of mass destruction.

7:00 PM - Meet at the Emily Williston Library, 9 Park Street
7:10 PM - Peace Walk departs for Nashawannuck Pond
7:30 PM - Peace Walkers arrive at the pond, and gather for reflections, performances, and lantern floating.
