Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki

August 6 and 9, 2020, mark the 75th anniversary of the devastating, racist and unnecessary atomic bombing of two Japanese cities, resulting in the immediate deaths of between 129,000 and 226,000 people, with many dying later from radiation exposure. In Japan and around the world, this entry into the atomic age will be remembered with calls for nuclear disarmament and international support for the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. In Western Mass. several events are being planned. While reflective and physically safe, they will express our solidarity with the remaining Hibakusha survivors, and call for a phase-out of nuclear weapons, as we make connections and demands for justice relevant to this time.
