ANNIVERSARIES OF HIROSHIMA & NAGASAKI ATOM BOMB DROPS:
Nuclear Weapons Protest Rally & March at Livermore Labs

When: August 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Livermore Lab, Vasco Rd & Patterson Pass Rd, Livermore

Come commemorate the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima (Aug. 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (Aug. 9, 1945) at the place where new nuclear weapons of mass destruction are being created today.

Hear from atom bomb survivor Nobuaki Hanaoka, famed author and whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, and other speakers and musicians.

Following the rally will be a procession to the West Gate where those who choose may risk arrest.

The resurgent risks of nuclear war and unresolved climate danger have caused the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to keep the Doomsday Clock set at 2-minutes to the apocalyptic midnight hour. This is as close to global Armageddon as the clock has been since it was introduced in 1947.

By gathering on August 6, we will use the visible power of our presence to transform U.S. policy from violence to peace.

PARKING: Free parking is available. There will be van pools to and from the Dublin-Pleasanton BART Station. Call Tri- Valley CARES, 925.443.7148 to reserve your seat -space is limited.

Rally, march, and the opportunity to peaceably risk arrest to commemorate the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the place where new nuclear weapons are being created today. The resurgent risks of nuclear war and unresolved climate danger have caused the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to keep the Doomsday Clock of the Atomic Scientists to keep it set at 2 minutes before the apocalyptic midnight hour. Join us to to transform U.S. policy from violence to Peace.

8 AM rally. Speakers include keynote Daniel Ellsberg, the whistleblower who released "The Pentagon Papers." Formerly an analyst at RAND Corp. and a consultant to the Defense Dept., specializing in the command and control of nuclear weapons, war plans and crisis decision-making. Also speaking will be Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka who was an infant when the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. His mother and sister died from illnesses linked to radiation poisoning and his brother died at age 39 from premature aging associated with fallout from the bomb. Rafael Jesus Gonzales, the first poet-laureate of Berkeley, and Marylia Kelley of Tri-Valley CAREs will also be featured. Join us to say "Never again" to the use of nuclear weapons - and to call for their global abolition. Music by Oakland Mind.

9:30 March and Action. Join the procession to the Livermore Lab West Gate to block the entrance with a Japanese bon dance and symbolic die-in. Following the die-in those who choose will peaceably risk arrest.
