Ban Nuclear Weapons

October 26, 2017 – 5:30-8:00 PM

As part of the international observance of Disarmament Week, join the Newman Center for a screening of the documentary film, Gate: A True Story, narrated by Martin Sheen.  After the film, there will be an opportunity to join the 122 #UnitedNations member states and over 100 #NGO to support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The #USA and other #nucleararmedstates have not signed this Treaty.  For more information, click here to visit the Facebook event page.

Synopsis: After the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the survivors began to pray; not for vengance but that Nagasaki would be the last city to know the horrors of the atomic bomb. Japanese Zen monks guard the “Atomic Flame”, still burning 60 years after the bombing and return it to the place of its inception, the Trinity Test Site in New Mexico. They hope to start a new cycle of disarming the 3,000+ existing nuclear warheads and reducing the threat to world peace and our fragile planet. We thank our partners in the peace movement, Honpa Hongwanji Hawaii, for providing the film.
