65] – For the past 41years, the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Peace Committee of the National Capital Area has been organizing for the abolition of nuclear weapons and power and in support of nuclear victims. The group believes that if the world is to avoid repeating the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we must strive to keep alive the memory of the bombings. The atomic bombings serve as a warning to humanity of the genocidal nature of nuclear weapons, and the pressing need for their abolishment. We link our work for nuclear disarmament with our opposition to militarism, oppression, social injustice, and environmental degradation. 

 On Aug. 5 at 7 PM ET [Aug. 6, 8 AM Japan Time], hear from Mary Olson, founder of the Gender and Radiation Impact Project, and long-time anti-nuclear activist.
