Visit of hibakusha from Hiroshima/Nagasaki: September 26, 2017, 11 AM – 1:30 PM Tulsa Community College, SE Campus Student Union Auditorium
Outer Space Treaty of 1967 designates space as a global commons to be used for peaceful purposes—of which Russia and China and the U.S. are parties.
TPF is sponsoring a display of a photo exhibit on the horrors of atomic warfare in WWII, with a 1/2 lecture on the meaning of atomic warfare by Dr. Jeremy Kuzmarov (lecture on 3 dates).
“At this time in U.S. history many are forgetting the horror of nuclear weapons, and some are even suggesting our country develop new nuclear weapons. Some of the images are disturbing, but that is the reality of nuclear weapons.”
Entrance is free, and we encourage youth to attend (ages 9 and up).
Here is a description of the posters, from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Japan:
In August 1945, Hiroshima and Nagasaki each were completely destroyed by a single nuclear weapon, bringing about the loss of about 200,000 precious lives. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum has developed a collection of posters concerning the conditions of the A-bomb damage including the A-bomb mushroom clouds and the A-bomb dome with the intent of passing the reality of the A-bombings on to as many people as possible and to heighten the awareness of peace.
The schedule for the display and associated talks:
Saturday, August 4th from 1:00PM to 3:00PM
Sunday, August 5th from 1:00PM to 4:00PM (after Humanist Sunday Services)
Monday, August 6th starting at 7:00PM
Thursday, August 9th , starting at 7:00PM
with a 1/2 lecture on the meaning of atomic warfare by Dr. Jeremy Kuzmarov (lectures on 3 dates, Sunday 1pm, Monday 7pm, and Thursday 7pm).
