Commemorate. Reflect. Organise. with Senator Steele-John and Lee Rhiannon.

Hiroshima Day (6 AUG) commemorates the day in August 1945 when an atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, followed a few days later by another dropped on the city of Nagasaki (9 AUG).

While the bombings effectively ended World War II by bringing about the surrender of Japan, this came at a terrible price. The two cities were destroyed and casualties, mostly civilians, were estimated at around 200,000, with many more people dying later from injuries and illness.

Hiroshima & Nagasaki Days are now a focus for anti-war and anti-nuclear discussions and demonstrations around the world.

Today a large majority of governments in the world have adopted a treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons. Australia is not one of them.

Just a few days after Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days, we will join the Australian Greens' Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, Peace and Nuclear Disarmament and former Senator and anti-nuclear activist, Lee Rhiannon, to commemorate, reflect and organise. The Greens will win the struggle to disarm the world of nuclear weapons, please join us.

If you are under 18, your parent or guardian will need to contact the event organiser directly to let them know there will be someone under 18 attending.

11th August, 2022 7:30 PM   through   8:30 PM
