3-3-2-5200,000 Gather against Nuclear Arms
In 1979, the deployment of intermediate-range nuclear missiles in NATO nations triggered an unprecedented anti-nuclear movement in Europe and the United States. In Japan, approximately 200,000 people gathered in Peace Memorial Park for the Hiroshima Rally for Peace. Held on March 21, 1982, this event demonstrated the population’s determined opposition to nuclear weapons through songs, speeches, and numerous side-events including A Space for Young People.
