SUNDAY 9th AUG - Quaker Meeting for Hiroshima

Quaker Meeting : Hiroshima Day, 2009

A Quaker Meeting, open to everyone, will be held in the Peace Garden, Hull, Sunday 9th August at 12.30pm.
The Peace Garden is situated at the Hull College end of Queen's Gardens.

The anniversary of Hiroshima Day itself is 6th August dating back to 1945 when the atomic bomb was used for the first time. Three days later, on August 9th, a similar atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

"These first atomic bombs were the weapons of mass destruction of their day. Each bomb killed about 100,000 Japanese people, including those dying later of after-effects," says Martin Deane,of Hull area Green Party.

"Six years ago we started a war against a country that we wrongly accused of developing one of these weapons. Meanwhile we have 200 of them and a commitment to develop the next generation. But just one nuclear warhead today, exploded half a mile above Queen's Gardens, would destroy the Hull area out to Beverley. We should fear these weapons.

"Some people argue that they have kept the peace for 60 years. Yet millions continue to die in wars. Deterrence is the attitude of the gunslinger."

The vigil will be supported by members of the Hull Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Hull Stop the War Coalition, Hull Green Party, and Hull Campaign Against the Arms Trade, amongst others.
