Hiroshima Day 2013 in Oak Ridge, TN

Gathered at the front gates of the Y12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge,
that fueled the Little Boy bomb was produced, Hiroshima was remembered on August 6, 2013. The Names and Remembrance ceremony is conducted in a spirit of solidarity with the hibakusha, survivors of the bombing who have courageously told their story in order to convey one simple and direct message: Never Again!


Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at orep@earthlink.net or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
