Many organizations in the Bay Area of California have come together to organize an event to commemorate of the 69th Anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The theme this year is, "Failure To Disarm: Holding Our Government Accountable." We will stand in silence at the time of the bombing and hear short talks on how we can make our government accountable. Rick Wayman of NAPF will be one of the speakers.
Immediately following the music and 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.
