Tanamori, Hibakusha (Japanese atomic bomb survivor). With wonderful music by Emma's Revolution. Together, solemnly we will commemorate the nightmarish effects of nuclear weapons from uranium mining to testing use on the people of Japan, the Marshall Island, and the First Nations and all the people living near nuclear facilities across the country and around the world. We will recommit ourselves to efforts to abolish these indiscriminate weapons of mass destruction Please bring a large photograph of a loved one. As always, we act in the spirit of nonviolence.

At 9:15 am we will march to the gates of Livermore Lab, where we will join in an Obon dance, (Japanese folk dance). Following the dance those who choose will peaceably risk arrest.
