Please join the Walpole Peace and Justice Group for a peace vigil, ‘ Hiroshima & Nagasaki: 70 Years - Never Again’ on Wednesday, Friday August 7, 2015 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM, on the Walpole Common at the corner of Main and West Streets. Seventy years after the United States atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and 45 years after the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the 9 nuclear weapons states have yet to take the next step of negotiating a total abolishment of nuclear weapons. We join with peace groups, people of faith, community groups, and all people who care about the future of humanity to call for all countries to disarm nuclear weapons. Join us for some readings and a time of observance and reflection.
