Join PSR-LA Board Member and Citizens for Peaceful Resolutions (CPR) Co-chair Dr. Robert Dodge for a talk at 3 pm, followed at 4:30 by CPR’s annual vigil for peace and nuclear weapons abolition, commemorating the 67th anniversary of the bombings.
The vigil will be held in Plaza Park at the Peace Garden.
Sunday, August 5, 2012
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Foster Library’s Topping Room, 651 E. Main St., Ventura
and Ventura’s Plaza Park on Santa Clara, across from Main Post Office.
Participants will record a brief video message to participate in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons’ Million Pleas to Free the World from Nuclear weapons. The video project has been started by a group of school children from Hiroshima, Japan and is addressed to the 9 countries still in possession of nuclear weapons. People from all over the globe upload a video clip of themselves saying the word “please”. The “pleases” will then be edited into a long virtual chain letter, which will act as a petition to abolish nuclear weapons, worldwide. For more information, see Million Pleas and ICAN.
