On August 6th  the New York City Granny Peace Brigade  held a Hiroshima / Nagasaki  day memorial event in front of the New York City Public Library at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street. The memorial was held during the  rush hour as people were leaving work returning home. This way the memorial would have the greatest public visibility. There were numerous tourists also passing by. People stopped to take pictures and many took the yellow leaflets the grannies were handing out.

Mazin Qumsiyeh. PhD adds the following from Palestine and Hiroshima

70 years ago, on August 6 and August 9, the US government of Harry Truman
dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Here is from my visit and
speech on that anniversary August 6, 2013 in Hiroshima.

This is the same Truman that pushed successfully to create nuclear armed
apartheid state of Israel that is terrorizing Palestinians and has
committed hundreds of massacres. Today Saad Dawabshe died of his severe
burns. He is the father of 18 month old martyr Ali who was burned alive in
the attack by racist Jewish colonial settlers on their family home. The
mother and second child still in critical condition. And the world leaves a
group of “pyromaniacs led by an egalomaniac” running a tinderbox (not my
words but words of an ex-Director of Israel’s security service, see below).
But the struggle goes on.

    I love the photo’s also.
    The granny’s are beautiful.
    The West needs the nuclear weapons to rule the worlds finances.
    Fear is a great persuader.
    Just look at the fiasco that the European Union is, every member country is being asset stripped by the Banks & they wants out but are to afraid of retaliation to make a move.
    The Middle East – Syria are perfect examples of what is in store.
    The bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki were planned & agreed to by may countries, including the then leadership of Japan, or they would never have happened.
    Japans power brokers were promised redevelopment & the power brokers were assured of making a fortune on the rebuilding & future business.
    The Experiment –
    The Demonstration –
    Many in the West & Europe feared exposure for their role in WW2 including & especially the Banks. A strong message needed to be sent out to warn off any heros looking for the truth about WW2.
    Good Luck Ladies
    You are brilliant.
