Join us for a talk by CPR Co-chair Dr. Robert Dodge, followed
at 4:30 by CPR’s annual vigil for peace and nuclear weapons
abolition, commemorating the 67th anniversary of the bombings.

 The vigil will be held in Plaza Park at the Peace Garden.


Sunday, August 5, 2012

3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Foster Library’s Topping
Room, 651 E. Main St., Ventura

and Ventura’s Plaza
Park on Santa Clara, across from Main Post Office.
 

We will record a brief video message to participate in the
International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons’ Million Pleas
to Free the World from Nuclear weapons.  The video project has
been started by a group of school children from Hiroshima, Japan
and is addressed to the 9 countries still in possession of nuclear
weapons.  People from all over the globe  upload a video clip of
themselves saying the word “please”. The “pleases” will then be
edited into a long virtual chain letter, which will act as a
petition to abolish nuclear weapons, worldwide.  For more
information, see Million
Pleas
and ICAN.
