Hiroshima Commemoration 2015

Join us for the 70th Anniversary of the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Commemoration  on Thursday, August 6th at noon in Westmarket Square in downtown Bangor.

You are invited to participate in or stand as witness to a “die-in” to represent the thousands who died in the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Following the die-in there will be a Walk for Peaceful priorities throughout downtown Bangor, to call attention to the money that is currently spent on these dangerous weapons and how it could be used to meet human needs in our communities.
