Kingston Hiroshima Day – 75 years later
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 21, 2020
On August 6th, 2020 the Kingston Hiroshima Day Coalition marks the 75th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Keeping participants health and safety in mind this year’s event will be shorter than years past. It will commence at 7:00pm and take place at McBurney Park where attendees will be asked to wear masks and keep a physical distance from people outside of their normal circle. Hand sanitizers will be available.
With over 13,000 nuclear weapons and escalating tension around the globe we are called more than ever to remember the horrors that weapons of mass destruction unleash on civilian populations. August 6th and 9th 1945 are remembered and mourned worldwide. In Kingston, Hiroshima Day ceremonies have been held for close to 40 years.
The event will feature music, time for reflection and actions that we all can take to work for PEACE.
Everyone is welcome.
