Please join Arlington United for Justice with Peace for our monthly vigil on August 6 from 10:30-11:30 am in Arlington Center. We will remember the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and protest the ongoing wars/gun violence.
Stop gun violence! Stop racialized police violence! Stop preparing for nuclear war!
"Upping the Nuclear Weapons Ante: Modernizing Doomsday" will be the subject of a presentation and discussion sponsored by Newton Dialogues on Peace and War on Sunday, June 5 at 7:00PM. Few know that the US administration is making plans to spend approximately $1 Trillion over the next 30 years to modernize and upgrade our arsenal of nuclear weapons and delivery systems, at a time when we should be seeking to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
One of the defining documentaries of the 20th century, The Atomic Cafe offers a darkly humorous glimpse into mid-century America, an era rife with paranoia, anxiety, and misapprehension. Whimsical and yet razor-sharp, this timeless classic illuminates the often comic paradoxes of American life in the Atomic Age, while also exhibiting a genuine nostalgia for an earlier and more innocent nation.

This will be the final talk in the series accompanying the Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Working for a Nuclear Weapons-Free World exhibit. Her talk will build from her recent book Thermonuclear Monarchy: Choosing Between Democracy and Doom and from her recent speaking engagements in Hiroshima.
Massachusetts Peace Action and American Friends Service Committee invite you to the first of a series of talks on Remembering Hiroshima! The first talk is based on Hibakusha and their quest for a nuclear weapon-free world. Hibakusha is the word coined by the Japanese for those who survived the atomic bombs. The word Hibakusha literally translates to bomb-affected-people.
Joseph Gerson, Director of AFSC’s Peace & Economic Security program is the author of With Hiroshima Eyes and Empire and the Bomb. He has worked closely with Hibakusha, the witness/ survivors of A- & H- bombs detonations in Japan and other nations for three decades. His talk will include photos of these courageous women and men, excerpts of their testimonies, and descriptions of their work for a nuclear weapons-free world.
