In 2009 President Obama declared that America seeks the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. Ask him to visit Hiroshima and recommit to that vision.
Few of us realize that the Marshall Islands, located between Hawaii and the Philippines, is where the U.S. government tested 67 nuclear weapons in the 1960s. Residents were used to measure the health effects of nuclear fallout. Now a documentary, Nuclear Savage chronicles this situation showing how a community continues to struggle for survival and dignity. Join us where the WPSR office is, University Lutheran Church, 1604 NE 50th St. Seattle, WA 98105, to watch this award winning documentary and for a discussion that follows. Donations will be taken to help Marshallese travel to the UN Human Rights Council for human rights hearings. Event starts at 6:30, film at 7:00. FREE parking on north side of building.
