WITH LOVE to Hiroshima and Nagasaki
UPDATE                          TICKETS ON SALE AT THE DOOR

WITH LOVE TO HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI: A CONCERT FOR DISARMAMENT is part of the SPRING MOBILIZATION FOR PEACE + PLANET: NO NUKES, NO WAR, NO WARMING

2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the dawn of the Nuclear Age, and in April and May the United Nations will be hosting the Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).  Atomic bomb survivors, known in Japanese as hibakusha, have long travelled to this conference, which happens once every five years, to demand that nuclear weapon countries disarm.  For seven years hibakusha have been telling their stories to New York City high school and university students, reaching over 25,000 youth.  This evening is to honor them for their tireless work for peace, to engage the larger public in the growing movement for nuclear abolition and to pass the torch to a new generation.
