Event Description

This will be the 26th year of the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Vigil in Ashland.  This year's theme is: "Lessons from Disaster: Hiroshima to Fukushima" and the emphasis will be on commemorating the victims of the bombings at the dawn of the nuclear age 66 years ago and of the nuclear disaster at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant earlier this year as well as on education and ideas for action.

Learn about nuclear power risks, the location of plants and contaminated areas, the dangers of nuclear weapons still poised in silos and subs all over the world and the progress
and failures of international treaties.

The vigil will begin with the lighting of a memorial candle in remembrance of all the victims of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima at 8 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, on the lawn at the entrance to Lithia Park near the Plaza in downtown Ashland,
followed by a moment of silence.  Ashland Mayor John Stromberg, a member of the international Mayors for Peace
organization, will read Ashland’s proclamation designating the city as a nuclear-free zone.  At 3 p.m. that day
the Whistling Elk Drum group will perform on the Plaza. 

After the opening ceremony, the public will be invited to explore a “Nuclear Maze,” a large artistic display on the subject on the Plaza.  The display will be open around
the clock as the vigil continues until 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 8.

A closing ceremony for the vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, the 66th anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing, in the Japanese Garden in Lithia Park. The public will be invited to float sunflowers, the symbol of the nuclear-free movement, down the stream that flows through the Japanese Garden to Ashland Creek.

The Ashland Branch of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom is the primary organizer of the event. Most of the Rogue Valley peace and justice organizations are co-sponsors.

Coronavirus News

Explosive If True: “I’m a Clinical Lab Scientist, C19 Is Fake, Wake up America” | The True Defender !

What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious. The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19. If they can’t or won’t send us a viable sample, I say there is no Covid 19, it is fictitious. The four research papers that do describe the genomic extracts of the Covid 19 virus never were successful in isolating and purifying the samples. All the four papers written on Covid 19 only describe small bits of RNA which were only 37 to 40 base pairs long which is NOT A VIRUS. A viral genome is typically 30,000 to 40,000 base pairs.

COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak | Forbes

Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.

CDC says asymptomatic people don't need testing, draws criticism from experts | TheHill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person. The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.  The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”

What Kind of Covid Test Should I Get? Answers on Cost, Accuracy and More | WSJ

There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test. Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
