Toronto Will Not Wait Until 3 Minutes to Midnight

August 4, 2015

In 2015, the Doomsday Clock was moved forward 2 minutes to rest at 3 minutes to midnight, matching the nuclear threat to human existence that occurred during the height of the Cold War. From New York to Vienna, New Delhi to Geneva, cities around the world are commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with a unifying voice for nuclear abolition. Toronto, declared a Nuclear Weapons-Free Zone by City Council in 1983, is joining in the global call for nuclear disarmament.

Toronto’s Hiroshima/ Nagasaki Day Coalition organized “Ground Zero to Global Zero: Hope After 70 Years” to acknowledge the new hope for nuclear abolition with the Humanitarian Consequences of Nuclear Weapons conferences, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and the Humanitarian Pledge. After 70 years, there is a global imperative that negotiations for a Nuclear Weapons Convention push forward.

On Thursday August 6, 2015 at the Church of the Holy Trinity (10 Trinity Square, behind the Eaton Centre), Torontonians and their international guests will join to say “Not This City, Not Any City”. Canadian Co-president of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, Paul Dewar, speaks, with performances by flautist Ron Korb, Taiko Drummers Raging Asian Women, the Pax Christi Chorale and the Raging Grannies.

The event is free and open to the public, community tables at 4:30 pm, commemoration ceremony starts at 6:30 pm.
