[ 11:00 ] Commemorating Hiroshima

On August 6th, the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Pittsburgh activists gathered for an event organized by Remembering Hiroshima Imagining Peace for poetic and musical performances to commemorate the day. The following excerpts, from a longer piece written by Thomas Merton, was read by the Merton Center reading study group that night. It describes the timeline of events leading up to the bombing.

This audio was editing by Emily Laychak who attended the event.

[ 5:48 ] Musical Break -

B Dolan's "Film the Police" is a reminder that police officers are a continued and increasingly militarized presence in public streets. Thanks to the widespread use of smartphones and video cameras, along with the popularity of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, the power of the media has been put back into the people's hands as they document the injustices perpetrated by those who have sworn to serve and protect them.

That was "Film The Police" by B Dolan, featuring Sage Francis, Toki Wright, and Jasiri X. Download the free MP3 at StrangeFamousRecords.com
