Unfinished Business and Our Most Urgent Responsibility:
Banning the Bomb at Livermore Lab and Globally

Each year, to commemorate the anniversaries of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we hold an event at Livermore National Laboratory, one of the two facilities in the country that designs every U.S. nuclear weapon.

Daniel Ellsberg, Keynote Speaker - Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka, Hibakusha, survivor of the bombing of Nagasaki - Cecile Pineda - Taiko Drumming - Okinawan music from Wesley Ueunten

We gather to remember these atrocities and demand the abolition of nuclear weapons at the site where new and modified nuclear weapons are being developed. At a time when federal funds for vital social services are being decimated by the budget sequester, we are demanding that money currently spent to maintain and modernize nuclear weapons (over $30 billion a year) be redirected to fund human needs.

This year we will gather at the northwest corner of the Lab on Tuesday, August 6, at 7:00am. We will have amazing speakers, Japanese Taiko drummers, wonderful musicians and more. Immediately following the program, there will be a short procession to the Livermore Lab's West Gate. Those who choose will peacefully risk arrest, while others will provide legal witness and support.

Parking will be marked along Patterson Pass Road at the corner of Vasco Road. Van pick-ups from the Dublin-Pleasanton BART station. Must call to reserve a spot.
