Hiroshima commemoration tonight

"Bring candles, songs, poems, banners, friends... or just yourself," say the organisers.

The commermoration will be followed by a gathering at 7.15pm at the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre Peace Pole on the Terrace of St John's Church (corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road).

All welcome.
