Gather to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and to call for the abolition of all nuclear weapons. We will gather in the small park where the two rivers join in downtown Providence. The park is accessed from the Steeple Street Bridge. We will light luminaria, read the words of Japanese Hibakusha, sing and share silence.
Buddhist monks and nuns from the Peace Pagoda in Leverett MA, together with other supporters, are engaged in their annual pilgramage for peace. This year's walk to Washington DC will pass through Concord on its way to Portsmouth. Participants will stop for a vegetarian potluck meal and a discussion. Come and meet them and hear about their journey.
