Peace Cranes on Hiroshima Day
Tues 8/6/13 from 10am-2pm
at Balboa Park “big” fountain
Tuesday August 6, 2013 marks the 68th anniversary
of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima by the United States.
Join the Peace Resource Center as we fold paper peace cranes and give them to people visiting Balboa Park. Look for the blue banner “Hiroshima / Nagasaki – Never Again” near the fountain between the Natural History Museum and the Rueben H. Fleet Space Center. Both these museums are free on that Tuesday and there will be many people to have conversations with about nonviolent alternatives to resolve international conflict.
We will be there from 10am until 2pm. Come for as little or as long as you like.
Experience folding paper cranes is not required. Bring along some gently used paper to recycle into cranes.
