August 9, 2016 Action at Livermore Lab 8 AM

On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, participants will gather at the northwest corner of the Livermore Lab (Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road in Livermore). The program will begin at 8:00 AM.  

A Hibakusha (atomic bomb survivor) speaker has been invited. Expect great speakers, music, drummers, art and hundreds of peace advocates. Together, we will commemorate the past and change the future. More than 16,000 nuclear weapons in the world today continue to pose an unacceptable threat to life on Earth, and we will call for their abolition.  

At 8:15 AM, there will be a solemn moment of silence to honor radiation victims worldwide. The U.S. dropped the first nuclear bomb used in war on Hiroshima at 8:15 AM local time, August 6, 1945. 

Immediately following the program will be a "call to action," in which participants will be invited to march a short distance to the Livermore Lab West Gate. Those who choose will nonviolently risk arrest. Others will conduct a legal witness and support. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Livermore Conversion Project, Tri-Valley CAREs, Ecumenical Peace Institute, Western States Legal Foundation, No Nukes Action, Asian Americans for Peace and Justice, American Friends Service Committee, Jane Addams Peace Association, Peace Action West, Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center, and others. For more information, contact Tri-Valley CAREs at 925-443-7148.
