This weekend: Commemoration of the Historic June 12th 1982 Demonstration for Nuclear Disarmament and Human Needs

June 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

WESPAC Founder Connie Hogarth played an instrumental role in organizing this historic march for nuclear disarmament that took place on June 12th in 1982.  

On this historic day, one million people marched from the United Nations, filled the streets of New York City, and rallied in Central Park to demand an end to the nuclear arms race.

While the June 12th demonstration anchored the efforts, many other important parts of the mobilization occurred before and after that historic day, including the nonviolent civil disobedience actions at each of the five nuclear nations’ missions to the UN on June 14th; a major international conference; an interfaith religious service; and scores of cultural and educational activities.

Throughout these days, people from all over the world spoke with one voice to say “No More Hiroshimas,” paving the way for a future without nuclear weapons. Forty years later, we invite you to join us for a series of virtual events to learn from those who organized the June 12th, 1982 demonstration, as well as current activists who continue to work for the total elimination of nuclear weapons.
