A Call to Observe Hiroshima & Nagasaki Week in Massachusetts

August 6-9, 2015

70 years after the United States atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and 45 years after the entry into force of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the 9 nuclear weapons states have not acted on  their solemn commitment to enter into serious negotiations to abolish nuclear weapons. 

The Peace & Planet mobilization for a Nuclear-Free, Peaceful, Just and Sustainable World brought thousands of people from many countries to the streets of New York on April 26, and the Global Wave held over 100 actions around the world calling on governments to eliminate nuclear weapons before they eliminate us.

People's History Teach in on Vietnam War - Report by Duncan McFarland and Thea Paneth

A teach-in on the history of the Vietnam War, with a focus on resistance, was held on March 28, 2015 at MIT. The program was organized by United for Justice with Peace, the eastern Massachusetts coalition formed after 9/11 and hosted by MIT's Technology and Culture Forum.

Veterans For Peace put out a national call for programs to accurately reflect the events of the period in response to a major Pentagon effort to officially rewrite history and sanitize that war as a propaganda campaign to justify current wars.

This year is a commemorative year, the 50th anniversary of the first antiwar teach-in at the University of Michigan and the 40th anniversary of the end of the war in 1975.

Doug Rawlings, one of the six co-founders of Veterans For Peace started the day with a moving poem, Walking the Wall: “if your nightmares wait for the night, you are a survivor.”
