Tomorrow, August 5th, commemorations of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings by the United States, 75 years ago, will begin in earnest and will continue through Aug. 9. Beyond Nuclear has posted a long listing of these events at our NUCLEAR WEAPONS website section. They are arranged chronologically backward, in the order in which we learned of the events. Most of these events are online, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, certain events are in-person, with appropriate social distancing and required mask-wearing precautions.
To join a major national coalition’s virtual commemoration events on August 6th beginning at 11am Eastern, and August 9th beginning at 2 pm Eastern, visit hiroshimanagasaki75.org. These events will be several hours long.
Please visit Beyond Nuclear’s NUCLEAR WEAPONS website section, to find Hiroshima and Nagasaki commemorations you too can attend, online (or even in-person, at certain places), over the course of the next several days. Be sure to scroll back to at least the July 31 postings, as there are a large number of events taking place. All told, we have posted about 30 separate announcements, from across the U.S., from Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, and from elsewhere around the world, so keep scrolling down/back, to see your options for commemorations you can take part in.
