Photos from Hiroshima Day Peace Vigil at Los Alamos, NM

We had a beautiful peace witness to commemorate at the 72nd anniversary of the US atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, this weekend, in Los Alamos, NM, near the labs where they continue to build nuclear weapons. We gathered in the park, walked Trinity Drive toward the labs, sat in Sackcloth and Ashes in silent prayer for 30 minutes, then gathered back at the park, where we heard some amazing speakers who work on nuclear disarmament full time, based in New Mexico.  One of the speakers was our friend Leona Morgan, who is Diné (Navajo) and head of Diné No Nukes, cofounder of the Nuclear Issues Study Group, and also works on the Haul No! Campaign in Arizona to end the uranium mining that has plagued and killed people out here. That grass park, where we gather, is the actual physical spot where the Hiroshima bomb was built in 1945.
