Peacefully Remembered: Japan 1945

Japanese Peace Lanterns

As Japan holds their Sixty-sixth remembrance ceremony at Peace Memorial Park, in memory of the catastrophic and deeply tragic loss of life following the 1945 nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the UK prepares to stand alongside the Japanese through a number of our own commemorative events this weekend. Proudly led by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) Britain will host three days of events in honour of the victims, with the aim to draw ever closer to the ultimate goal of the CND, who ‘campaign non-violently to rid the world of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and to create genuine security for future generations.’

Sadly, the timing of these events, this year, coincide with the unprecedented brutality we see emerging from the Arab Spring, offering a timely and significant reminder to us all, of the dangers of such heightened hostility.

With events happening across the UK, it seems an extremely apt to reflect upon and remember those that have been lost, and to resolutely promote peace within our international communities.

For all those wanting to pay their respects, a variety of events will be taking place this weekend from Friday 5th to Sunday 6th August, in London, Oxford, Coventry, Birmingham and Liverpool:

Friday 5th August: Hiroshima day peace picnic

CND Lewisham, Greenwich, Sydenham, Forest Hill; on the lawn behind Charlton House

Saturday 6th August:  Commemorative ceremonies:

London – Noon – 1pm, Hiroshima Cherry Tree in Tavistock Square
