Tour of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum – Instagram livestream

22nd July 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

Find ICAN on Instagram to watch the livestream: @nuclearban

A single atomic bomb indiscriminately killed tens of thousands of people, profoundly disrupting and altering the lives of the survivors. Through belongings left by the victims, A-bombed artifacts, testimonies of A-bomb survivors and related materials, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum conveys to the world the horrors and the inhumane nature of nuclear weapons and spreads the message of “No More Hiroshimas.”

Mary Popeo is co-founder and business director of Peace Culture Village, a peace education nonprofit in Hiroshima, Japan and will be taking us around the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum this Wednesday, 22 July. As a student at Boston College, Mary visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki on research grants to study nuclear weapons and nuclear energy. Those experiences completely changed her life and after graduating, she became a youth organizer and nuclear weapons abolition activist.

This LIVE tour is unique because you’ll be guided through the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in real time. You’ll also get the chance to see the impact of the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima in 1945 and understand why we need an immediate ban on nuclear weapons.
