Where: Corner of El Camino Real and Embarcadero

Description: Peaceful commemoration of the 76th anniversary of the U.S. bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and call to renew our commitment to peace and nuclear disarmament. We will be distributing paper cranes from our 75th anniversary installation of 2080 paper cranes made by local residents and many sent by peace activists in Ehime, Japan, and by the U.S. Women's League for Peace & Freedom members who organize our weekly vigils. We will be displaying paper peace cranes on the crossing poles and there will be an assortment of signs and a banner to end the nuclear era. We also encourage you to make a sign, if you wish, to express your hope for peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons. Sponsored by the Women's International League for Peace & Freedom.
