70th Anniversary of Hiroshima bomb, Dublin, 6th August

The annual commemoration for the victims of the Hiroshima atomic bomb will take place on Thursday, 6th August, the 70th anniversary of the bombing, at 1.05 p.m. at the memorial cherry tree in Merrion Square park, Dublin 2 - the tree was planted by Irish CND in 1980. The commemoration will be opened by Lord Mayor of Dublin Críona Ní Dhálaigh. The President of Irish CND, Canon Patrick Comerford, and Mr Naoki Yoshimura, First Secretary (Political) at the Japanese embassy in Dublin, will also speak. There will be short contributions of poetry and music from Irish and Japanese artists (weather permitting) and the laying of a wreath at the memorial tree. Representatives of several other embassies will also be in attendance.

This annual ceremony gives an opportunity to stand in solidarity with the victims of these horrific weapons of mass destruction, and to affirm a determination to work for their elimination, the only way to ensure that the ghastly events of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will not be repeated. Approximately 17,000 nuclear weapons remain in the world today. While this is less than the Cold War peak, it is still enough to destroy life on earth as we know it many times over. Organised by Irish CND/Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
