The OMNI Center’s Remembrance
“Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt: From Hiroshima and Nagasaki to Nuclear Zero”
Hiroshima Nagasaki Remembrance
Sunday, August 9, 2015 ~ 7:00 p.m. ~ Fulbright Peace Fountain, University of Arkansas
Each year since the 1960s, The OMNI Center (originally the Peace Organizing Committee, Vietnam era) presented a respectful ceremony of remembrance marking the tragedy of the historic nuclear bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki 70 years ago: August 6 and August 9, 1945.
The annual Hiroshima Nagasaki Remembrance is OMNI’s oldest Peace action (2001). This year’s program will focus on national and international progress and momentum toward nuclear weapons abolition, including the current Marshallese Nuclear Suits presently in the world court.
The Omni Center is proud to be hosting this year’s Remembrance at the University of Arkansas’ Fulbright Peace Fountain. A component of the event program will be dedicated to the international peace and foreign relations legacy of former Arkansas United States Senator J. William Fulbright.
The Event Program includes performances by OMNI friend DAN DEAN, and Kelly and Donna of Still on the Hill. Speakers include Marshallese Consul Carmen Chong Gum and local peace advocate Bill Williams, with many other friends of peace you’ll love to see again.
