Hundreds of non-violent protestors marched to the gates of Livermore lab on the 69th Anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, 30 of whom were arrested in an act of civil disobedience. This year's events included a rally, march and direct action on the morning of Wednesday, August 6th. This year's theme, "Failure To Disarm: Holding Our Government Accountable" pointed out ongoing nuclear weapon "modernization" programs happening at Livermore Lab and elsewhere in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Attendees stood in silence at the time of the bombing and heard inspiring talks on how we can make our government accountable.
