Gather at Livermore Lab to Protest Nuclear Weapons 7:30 AM: music, speakers, art, and a solemn moment of silence to honor radiation victims. 8:30 AM: short procession to the gate where those who choose will peacefully risk arrest. Come to the Livermore nuclear weapons laboratory’s northwest corner, at Vasco & Patterson Pass Roads, in Livermore. There will be parking set up at the rally site and vanpools from the Dublin-Pleasanton BART station (call 925-443-7148 to reserve a seat). On the 69th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we invite all who seek peace and justice to gather at the location where scientists are developing nuclear weapons. Each new weapon design involves upgraded features able to rain unimaginable devastation on a moment’s notice anywhere on Earth. The budget request reveals that 89% of the Livermore Lab’s funding (more than a billion dollars) will go to nuclear weapons activities in the coming year. Stand with the Hibakusha (A-bomb survivors) to proclaim "Never Again." No Nukes. Join us. Free. Co-sponsored by American Friends Service Committee, Asian Americans for Peace & Justice, Campaign Nonviolence/Pace e Bene, Ecumenical Peace institute, Fr. Bill O’Donnell Social Justice Committee/Newman Peacemakers, Jane Addams Peace Association, Livermore Conversion Project, Mt.
