Join Bristol CND to mark the 76th anniversary of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945 which led to the death of 280,0000 people, almost all civilians.

Peace groups in Bristol will be running a four-day Peace Gathering near the Peace Tree on Castle Park (half-way along the footpath/cycleway overlooking the Harbour/Finzels Reach). All welcome.

The gathering starts with a die-in at 8:15am on Friday 6th– to remember the time Hiroshima was bombed. On following days the gathering will start at 10am and finish at about 6pm. In the evenings, weather permitting, there will be lantern lighting, musicians most welcome, plus a pop-up cinema showing peace and anti-war films.

There will be information stalls, an open-air art gallery, plus drop-in discussion-workshops on nuclear weapons, nuclear power, militarism, arms trade, refugees, climate-change and the protest movement. There will also be opportunities for protests at military and nuclear-related sites around the Bristol area.

Sunday morning will be available for religious and meditative events. Some people also choose to fast over the four days.

On Monday 9th there will be a die-in at 11:02 am to remember the time Nagasaki was bombed. This will be followed by a procession to present a Mayors for Peace petition at City Hall.
