Hastings Against War will commemorate those who lost their lives in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 with a ceremony at the boating lake in Alexandra Park on Monday August 6th. An estimated 185,000 people perished after US airforce planes bombed the cities, dying as a result of the initial blast, due to fires sparked by the bombs and as a result of radiation-sickness caused by the explosions.
