Pentagon prayers

On 6 August, Hiroshima Day, members of the Atlantic Life Community (ALC) witnessed for peace in a Washington museum by demonstrating next to the refurbished Enola Gay, the aircraft that dropped the Hiroshima bomb. 

The activists then went to the Pentagon and, wearing sack-cloth and ashes, held a vigil to remember the victims of the nuclear attack.

As ALC members prayed by a Pentagon entrance they were arrested and given a court date of 19 October.
