Hiroshima/Nagasaki Commemoration and Call to Action

59 years ago this week, the United States unleashed the fury of atomic weaponry on the civilian populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Although the attacks ended one war, they ushered in the Cold War and began an age of fear, paranoia and despair that we still live with today. Local activists, poets, musicians and people of faith will meet at Lake Harriet on Friday to mourn the loss of life at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and work to avoid repeating the brutality of our past.

– Vigil with music and poetry: 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, Lyndale Park Gardens across from the Lake Harriet Rose Garden, Minneapolis. Free

– Music with Gary Rue, Prudence Johnson and Dan Chouinard, poetry by Carol Connolly: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Lake Harriet Bandshell, Minneapolis. Free

Erik Farseth: The History of Zines

Zines, for those who have been living under a rock for the last 25 years, are self-produced, small print-run pamphlets or magazines that cover a diverse array of topics, from science fiction to travel to radical politics to the underground music scene. Local artists, zinester and cultural historian Erik Farseth has studied the zine phenomenon from the excellent vantage point of the Twin Cities’ punk milieu for some time. Join him for a fascinating slide lecture on the obscure origins of an amazing subculture.

– 5 p.m. Saturday

– Stevens Square Center for the Arts, 1905 3rd Ave. S. Minneapolis
