UUFCF Meeting on August 18, 2019

Peacemaking in the Nuclear Age On August 6, 1945, in response to provocation, the U.S. bombed the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and, three days later, Nagasaki killing over 200,000 people. That was 74 years ago yet, every August, we still commemorate those who died, renewing our commitment to world peace and our call to work for a world free of nuclear weapons. On July 11, 2017 the United Nations passed an historic resolution banning nuclear weapons (the vote was 122 – 1), with one nation (Singapore) abstaining. This sounds encouraging — except for the fact that the nine nations owning nuclear weapons chose not to participate. Join us as Lyndon Harris will offer a reflection and encourage dialogue on peace making and solidarity in the nuclear age.
