Hiroshima and Nagasaki Commemoration in Toronto August 6th, 2015

June 25, 2015

Toronto's Hiroshima Day Coalition presents "Ground Zero to Global Zero: Hope After 70 Years" to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Thursday August 6, 2015 (Hiroshima Day) at The Church of the Holy Trinity (west of Eaton Centre), Toronto. The commemoration starts at 6:30 p.m.

The Honorable Paul Dewar, Co-President of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament will give the key-note address.

Setsuko Thurlow says, "For us Hibakusha* who remember and honour the countless perished citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we need immediate policy change on nuclear weapons leading up to their complete elimination. As abolitionists, we all must renew our commitment to this work."

The event will welcome performances by the Yakudo Traditional Japanese Drummers, Flautist Ron Korb, the Pax Christi Chorale, and the Raging Grannies.

Everyone is welcome, doors open at 4:30 pm featuring tables from community partners. This event is free and open to the public.
