Activists to march in Los Alamos on Hiroshima anniversary

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) – Dozens of peace activists are expected to participate in march in Los Alamos around the 71th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports anti-nuclear activist Rev. John Dear will lead a match Saturday to the boundaries of Los Alamos National Laboratory and then to Ashley Pond Park to meditate and pray

Dear says Los Alamos National Laboratory and its employees must repent for participating in the manufacture of nuclear weapons.

During the World War II-era Manhattan Project, scientists at the then-secret city of Los Alamos developed the weapon dropped on the Japanese cities.

Activists hold annual demonstrations in the New Mexico town that gave birth to the atomic weapon during the anniversary of the bombings.
