Hiroshima Remembrance Candlelight Vigil

August 6, 2013
Los Angeles, California

Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
Location: Santa Monica Civic Center, at the 26-foot-tall nuclear mushroom cloud “Chain Reaction” peace sculpture, 1800 block of Main Street just north of Pico Blvd

A public candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday, August 6 to remember the victims of the August 6, 1945 bombing of Hiroshima and to support efforts leading to a nuclear weapons-free world.

The vigil will include speakers from PSR-Los Angeles and other peace organizations who are concerned about the worldwide danger that exists from nuclear weapons. Also speaking will be community activists with Save Chain Reaction, who are working to save and restore the threatened ‘Chain Reaction’ warning monument that was designed, created and gifted to Santa Monica by late 3-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Paul Conrad. The sculpture has been standing in the Civic Center since 1991, and last year was designated as a Santa Monica landmark by the Santa Monica Landmarks Commission.

The event is being sponsored by PSR-Los Angeles and Save Chain Reaction. For further information call 310-399-1000 or email Jerry Rubin.
