Hiroshima Day Candlelight Vigil —Tuesday August 6th!
On August 6th, 1945, the U.S. dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. More than 100,000 Japanese men, women, and children died on August 6th, or within a few days. That began a nuclear arms race that continues to this day, at a cost of $trillions.
People who understand the true threat that path represents, say NO MORE!
Come stand with Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace for our Annual Hiroshima Day Vigil! (This is our 45th consecutive vigil!)
- Tuesday August 6th
- 7:30 PM
- Avon traffic circle, Routes 5&20, Avon NY
We will carry signs, light candles, sing peace songs, and witness for the peaceful world we know is possible. It’s encouraging and uplifting!
Rochester activists from Veterans for Peace will join us! So will The Raging Grannies!
All are welcome! Bring a sign! Bring a lawn chair! Bring a friend!
Rain or shine (but we draw the line at lightning!).
Info: Suzanne Blackburn (585) 245-1649
Note: Before the vigil, at 6:30 PM, some GVCP members will gather for a snack at Tom Wahl’s restaurant, 283 East Main St. (Routes 5 & 20) in Avon. All welcome!
