The Voice of Women’s Gathering in remembrance of Hiroshima Day
There is a gathering in remembrance of Hiroshima Day, with songs, a sharing circle, guest speakers and auction, of William S. Geimer’s book,  “Canada: the case for staying out of other peoples’ wars”. Dave Phillips, of Dave’s Blasting, will play the role of Auctioneer, with the book going to the highest bidder. The Voice of Women will receive the proceeds, to support their ongoing peace initiatives. So bid generously, if you can! While there, you’ll meet friends from various peace promoting organizations such as The Raging Grannies, Conscience Canada, The Japanese Garden Society, the Voice of Women, (who have hosted this event for the last 30 years!), as well as your friends and neighbours! Speakers, author Mr. Geimer, Professor of Law, Emeritus of Washington and Lee University and Megumi Saunders, who worked for the Bells for Peace Campaign last year, will share the hour long event with musicians Barb Slater and Kevin Wilkie, Susan Cogan and myself, all leading you in songs of peace. There will also be petitions to sign, in particular: the one about the 88 warplanes that the federal government plan to purchase, at close to 77 billion dollars! Already signed, Neil Young, David Suzuki, Elizabeth May, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Sarah Harmer…among many others. Let’s add our names, too! 77 billion dollars redirected away from the war machine and its devastating climate changing reliance on fossil fuels, could instead fuel many peace related industry and social well being programs, nationwide. We hope you’ll find yourself at the Peace Park-Heiwa Garden on Hiroshima Day, August 6th, at 5pm. If you are so inclined, in our closing circle, please share your reflections on the subject of peace.
