August 6 marks the 78th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The organization Humanity for Peace calls on anti-nuclear initiatives and peace groups to participate in the worldwide peace action.
The citizens' initiative Lighthouse Media Evolution Movement calls on all initiatives in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to participate in the worldwide peace action Humanity for Peace to set a sign against nuclear madness on the weekend of August 5 and 6, the anniversary of Hiroshima.
The initiative is intended to remind humanity that "nuclear war cannot be won and must never be waged." Together and across continents, rallies, vigils, musical commemorations, poetry readings and other activities will be held that day for peace and against the escalating threat of nuclear war.
In Vienna, a vigil will be held on Sunday, August 6 at 6 p.m. on Stephansplatz.
In Berlin, a large peace demonstration will take place on Saturday, August 5.
Other actions and rallies are already planned in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Kuala Lumpur, Nicaragua, Mexico and India. Peace activists and peace groups around the world are encouraged to join the peace initiative. For more information, visit Humanity for Peace.
