Pittsfield: Hiroshima Day vigil planned Wednesday
A Hiroshima Day vigil will take place from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, on the sidewalk around Park Square. At 8:15 a.m., the time the A-bomb fissioned above Hiroshima 69 years ago, there will be five minutes of silence.
This will be the 33th consecutive Hiroshima Day Vigil at Park Square.
Signs will be provided at the Park Square vigil, or people may bring their own. Participants may stay for all or part of the hour.
Sponsors are the Berkshire Citizens for Peace and Justice, the Global Issues Resource Organization, and the western Massachusetts American Friends Service Committee.
