Just back from the Hiroshima Day event in Redhill town centre. We held a minute’s silence and handed out lots of leaflets calling for the cancellation of the Trident project. We received a lot of interest and questions from passers-by; people seem to be finally waking up to the fact that there is a connection between massive expenditure on war and weapons, and the worsening economic conditions and cuts to public services.
Several Japanese people who live locally came along and brought their children. They had made some intricate paper cranes (the crane being a symbol of health and hope in Japanese culture), which they handed out in the street.
One man who attended the vigil had heard about it via our website – evidence that we are already showing up in Google searches despite this site being only a week or so old!
