Designing Armageddon at Livermore Lab

Date/Time

Aug 6, 2019
08:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Description

Rally, march, and the opportunity to peaceably risk arrest to commemorate the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the place where new nuclear weapons are being created today. The resurgent risks of nuclear war and unresolved climate danger have caused the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to keep the Doomsday Clock of the Atomic Scientists to keep it set at 2 minutes before the apocalyptic midnight hour. Join us to to transform U.S. policy from violence to Peace.

8 AM rally. Speakers include keynote Daniel Ellsberg, the whistleblower who released "The Pentagon Papers." Formerly an analyst at RAND Corp. and a consultant to the Defense Dept., specializing in the command and control of nuclear weapons, war plans and crisis decision-making. Also speaking will be Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka who was an infant when the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. His mother and sister died from illnesses linked to radiation poisoning and his brother died at age 39 from premature aging associated with fallout from the bomb. Rafael Jesus Gonzales, the first poet-laureate of Berkeley, and Marylia Kelley of Tri-Valley CAREs will also be featured. Join us to say "Never again" to the use of nuclear weapons - and to call for their global abolition. Music by Oakland Mind.

9:30 March and Action. Join the procession to the Livermore Lab West Gate to block the entrance with a Japanese bon dance and symbolic die-in. Following the die-in those who choose will peaceably risk arrest.
