Mon 8/5, 12 noon – 1 pm Peace Gathering to Commemorate Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Join us for a Peace Gathering to Commemorate the 74th Anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 74 years have passed since the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is estimated that the bombs have killed 210,000 citizens by the end of 1945 and, over the years, have ruined the health of many of the survivors. To honor the memory of those who were killed by the atomic bombings, a coalition of citizens and peace activists will gather in front of the Japan Consulate General in New York. The coalition’s conviction is that nuclear weapons must never be used again against any nation under any circumstances. The message of peace from Hibakusha to the people of the world is an appeal for all to realize a world free of nuclear weapons.
Where: In front of the building of the Consulate General of Japan in NY, 299 Park Avenue, NY, NY (Park Avenue & 48th Street)
