Hiroshima Day Solemn Peace Observance at Lockheed Martin, King of Prussia, PA and Nonviolent Action Supporting the UN Treaty to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons
August 6 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The atomic bombing of Hiroshima wiped out 90 percent of the city and immediately killed 80,000 people in the blast and firestorm; tens of thousands more would later die of radiation exposure. Three days after Hiroshima the U.S. dropped another A-bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 40,000 people, and thousands more from the delayed effects of radiation poisoning.
On July 7, 2017 –- following a decade of advocacy by International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and its partners -– an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations adopted a landmark global agreement to ban all nuclear weapons, known officially as the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
