2015年 「8・6集会」への誘い Invitation to the "August 6" Anarchist Gathering in 2015 at Hiroshima (Japan)

The Association for Anarchism Studies in Hiroshima decided at the ‘August 6th Gathering’ [date of the atomic-bombing in that city] this year to invite a wide range of people with an interest in anarchism from within and without Japan to the ‘August 6th Gathering’ of 2015, as it will be 70 years since the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and since Japan lost the war.

Welcoming this invitation, the Kansai anarchism studies group has decided to participate in organizing the ‘August 6th Gathering’ along with the Hiroshima anarchism research group, and would like to specifically call out to people with an interest in anarchism outside of Japan.

The Kansai anarchism studies group is accepting applications to the 2015 ‘August 6th Gathering.’ If you would like to participate please contact us by emailing the address below. We are also accepting applications from groups or individuals who are able to participate as co-organizers of this event along with us.

And we are looking for people who can translate English to Japanese and Japanese to English, for people to assist participants from abroad and for people to help with setting up the venue and other administrative tasks. We are especially looking for people who live on or around Hiroshima and who are able to converse directly with members of the Hiroshima anarchism research group throughout the following year.

Though the schedule for the gathering is not set, from the morning and through to the evening of the day we plan on a demonstration in Hiroshima city, a gathering and discussion, and presentations on anarchist movements in Japan and around the world.

The Association for Anarchism Studies in Kansai is mainly planning on presentations of academic research.

We are looking for spoken presentations in Japanese and English that are about 20 minutes long. Themes are things that have to do with August 6th such as: Hiroshima and anarchism, nuclear weapons/nuclear energy and anarchism, war and peace and anarchism.
We look forward to you participation. Let us meet on August 6th in Hiroshima next year.
