Livermore Demonstration on Anniversary of Hiroshima Bombing

Posted by Erin Bechtol

by Phil Nichols // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions 

Demonstration at Lawrence Livermore Lab on 73rd Anniversary of Hiroshima atomic bomb. I did not organize this event, heard about it through John Dear’s website, and attended. There was a peace dance and Japanese music. Many people had names of Hiroshima victims on papers they wore. Many of us laid down and people made chalk lines around our bodies signifying the remains of those killed in Hiroshima by the bomb. The Lawrence Livermore Lab workers had to drive over these outlines when they left work. Many people refused to disperse when ordered to do so by police, and some submitted for arrest/detention. They were released and given arrest documentation.
