Japanese for Peace

Hiroshima Day vigil at GPO - Melbourne, 6 August 2011

Representatives of Japanese for Peace and ICAN held a low-key vigil on the steps of the old GPO in Bourke Street, displaying banners and handing out flyers for the afternoon’s Peace Concert at the State Library and postcards relating to the Future Fund’s investments in the nuclear weapons industry. They shared the venue with members of Women in Black also holding a vigil calling for peace in Palestine.
