Peace Action and the Syracuse Peace Council commemorate the tragic nuclear bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and we renew our commitment to creating a nuclear-free world. We also remember the disastrous meltdown at the Fukushima Daiitchi nuclear power plant in 2011. We know that nuclear contamination is equally dangerous whether it comes from bombs or power generation, and the promotion of nuclear power worldwide contributes to nuclear weapons proliferation.

Please wear white or light-colored clothing to help us create a dramatic effect. Gather outside of City Hall at 11:30 am to find your place in the procession and get a prop to carry if desired. This year's route will wind through downtown Syracuse, around the downtown Farmers Market, and will end on the lawn of the MOST museum for a short vigil.

2012 Hiroshima Procession. Join us on August 6th!



How to Get Involved:

Show up and grab a prop. If you would like to help more, please call the Peace Council and let us know!
