6th-9th August

Central London

Every year, an International Fast is held in France, Britain and Germany between Hiroshima and Nagasaki days (6th-9th August). Initiated over thirty years ago in France, the fast takes place in sorrow and in commemoration of the 300,000 deaths at the atomic bombings of Japan.

This year, the fast takes on particular significance in Britain. In the final year before the decision on Trident replacement, the fast will take place near the seats of military and political power in Britain: Whitehall, Downing Street, the Ministry of Defence. 

Everyone is welcome to join the protest, whether you're fasting or not and whether you're staying for an hour or three days.
