A couple of anti-nuclear events will take place Sunday and Monday as the bombing of Hiroshima is remembered.
Pax Christi Santa Fe will hold its annual Hiroshima Day Commemoration from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Ashley Pond.
The next morning, Trinity Nuclear Abolition (TNA) will host a vigil for peace at LANL at the corner of Diamond and West Jemez. Organizers say there are gathering at 7 a.m. just as lab employees report to work.
The lab released the following statement, “the laboratory fully supports the rights of free speech and peaceful assembly. However, we cannot tolerate activities that are unsafe, illegal, or do not comply with laboratory security.”
According to the Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety website, the event will include a march of peace and a sackcloth and ashes prayer vigil for peace in commemoration of when, near the end of World War II, on Aug. 6, 1945, the U.S. bombed Hiroshima, Japan with a atomic weapon. Pax Christi Santa Fe and its members seek the abolition of nuclear weapons.
The Peace March and Sackcloth and Ashes Prayer Vigil for Peace will begin and end at Ashley Pond.
Bud Ryan, of Pax Christi Santa Fe, said, “We in Pax Christi Santa Fe and our members throughout New Mexico ask you to join us for our annual Hiroshima Commemoration on Aug. 4.”
