Resisting Nuclear Weapons 60 Years After Hiroshima and Nagasaki

August 6th and 9th mark the 60th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States. The San Francisco Bay Area's Livermore Lab is one of the national laboratories that serves as the brain of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex, which today is developing weapons to support U.S. wars of empire and continuing to contaminate the air and soil of cities surrounding it. On Saturday, anti-nuclear activists will meet there to proclaim, "No Nukes, No Wars!"

Nationwide, peace advocates will meet at the four central US nuclear weapons sites to call for an end to nuclear weapons proliferation. Locally, activists will meet for a ceremony to remember of the victims of atomic bombings. Afterwards, they'll march to Lockheed Martin, world’s largest maker and exporter of weapons. On Sunday, there will be commemoration of the victims of war at the Collateral Damage statue in Santa Cruz.
