“Weapons into Windmills”: Hiroshima and Nagasaki Greenfield Commemoration
Sat August 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
The weekly peace and democracy vigil at the Greenfield Common, Main St., will commemorate the 76th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with calls for nuclear disarmament and support for the UN Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Among the large banners, those saying “Weapons into Windmills,” will emphasize the need to de-militarize to fund urgent climate action.
Passers-by will be invited to add their thoughts and suggestions to a poster asking:
What else could we do with $367 billion from the military budget? That is half of the $763 billion military budget proposed by the Biden administration, an increase even over swollen Trump era amounts.
