On August 6, 2011, join your favorite peace & justice groups for a major event at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab. Mark the 66th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan at the place where scientists are developing new nuclear weapons. On this important day, we will come together to demonstrate our solidarity with the radiation victims of the nuclear bomb and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
This year's theme is, "From Hiroshima to Fukushima to Livermore: Confronting the Two-Headed Dragon of Nuclear Weapons and Nuclear Power." Come to William Payne Park, directly across the street from the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab at Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road.
Expect fantastic vegetarian food, music from Emma's Revolution and other artists, renowned speakers including Dr. Arjun Makhijani, spoken word artist Kaylah Marin, participatory peace activities and a live video conversation with a nuclear bomb survivor and anti-nuclear activists in Japan.
Additionally, on Tuesday, August 9 (Nagasaki Day) at 8:00am, there will be a ceremony and nonviolent direct action at the Livermore Lab's West Gate on Vasco Road at West Gate Drive. Those who choose may peaceably risk arrest as a form of nonviolent protest against nuclear weapons, while others will provide witness and support.
