The danger of nuclear war has escalated to a point that no thoughtful person on the planet can ignore it any longer. Yet, in this atmosphere, there are still some who think there should be more weapons, more sanctions, and who think that a nuclear war can be won against Russia. It is very clear that those who have provoked the war, and continue to escalate it, do not care about the lives of the people of Ukraine or any other nation on the planet for that matter. This is NOT acceptable to those of us who care about the well-being of ALL of humanity — those who do not wish to see the human race wiped off the face of the earth.
We, therefore, call on the citizens of the world to come together and raise our voices against this madness. Humanity For Peace is building a unified coalition, above ideologies, to stop this unfolding escalation towards nuclear war. We refuse to let humanity perish at the hands of insanity.
August 6 will be the 78th anniversary of the unnecessary and genocidal nuclear bombing of Hiroshima by the United States, which was followed days later by the same crime against Nagasaki. Humanity For Peace is proud to announce that on this occasion, August 6, 2023, an international rally will be held to remind the world that nuclear war should never be fought and can never be won. Humanity is better than that, and we must reject the destiny of inevitable war as a morally repugnant and horribly cynical view.
The main rally will be held at the United Nations in New York City, NY, from 1-4pm, which will be live streamed over the internet. In solidarity with this, sister rallies will be held in other cities around the world. Please get in contact with us if you are interested in organizing another sister rally.
There are currently over 20 organizations sponsoring the event. If your organization would also like to sponsor the event, please contact us. More information, including the current speakers list, can be found at HumanityForPeace.net.
As President Kennedy said in his famous address to American University in 1963, war is not inevitable — but only if we work instead to create peace. The leadership in the United States and NATO is currently not working towards this goal, but rather are further escalating and inflaming the situation in Ukraine. For this reason, an international chorus of voices must be raised against this policy, and sound the call for peace!
Join us August 6 — we must make this sentiment the dominant voice in the world!

This concert takes place on the 78th anniversary of the horrific 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, which was followed by the August 9th bombing of Nagasaki and in the context of the growing danger of world war today.
Sixty years ago, on June 10, 1963, President John F. Kennedy gave a speech at Washington, D.C.’s American University, eight months after the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The world had just barely avoided destroying itself in a thermonuclear war. The words he spoke that day are words we desperately need to listen to now:
“What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children—not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women—not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.”
Humanity for Peace is organizing a series of actions across the globe on August 6th, to commemorate those who should not have lost their lives that day, 78 years ago. We wish to remind humanity that “a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” We will join with others worldwide, holding rallies, vigils, musical tributes, poetry readings, and other activities that day, to insist on peace, and demonstrate how to end the escalating danger of nuclear war.
Now is the time to act on President Kennedy’s prophetic words: “Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.”
The Requiem will be conducted renowned conductor Maestro Gürer Aykal, the Permanent Conductor and General Music Director of Borusan İstanbul Philharmonic Orchestra, and professor emeritus and former conductor of El Paso, Texas Symphony Orchestra.
Join us at the Humanity For Peace Concert! Don’t miss this beautiful and impactful evening of music.
