75-Year Anniversary of Atomic Bombings

Published: May 29, 2020


On the historic 75th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, you are invited to join us on August 6, 2020, at the Livermore nuclear weapons lab in Livermore, California. Peace and justice groups around the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Livermore-based Tri-Valley CAREs will be marking the occasion at the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, where more than 80% of its budget request for the coming year is for nuclear weapons activities.

On August 6, 2020, participants will gather at the northwest corner of the Livermore Lab (Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road in Livermore). The program will begin at 8:00 AM. Expect great speakers, music, art, dance, and hundreds of peace advocates. Together, we will commemorate the past and change the future.

Immediately following the program will be a "call to action," in which participants will be invited to march a short distance to the Livermore Lab West Gate. Those who choose will nonviolently risk arrest. Others will conduct a legal witness and support.

This event is co-sponsored by the Livermore Conversion Project; Tri-Valley CAREs; Ecumenical Peace Institute; Western States Legal Foundation; No Nukes Action Committee; Asian Americans for Peace and Justice; Peace Action; Northern California War Tax Resistance-People’s Life Fund; Physicians for Social Responsibility-San Francisco Bay Area Chapter; Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center, and numerous others. For more information, click into the flyers on this page and/or contact Tri-Valley CAREs at www.trivalleycares.org and by phone at 925-443-7148.
