WNCPSR Participates at Veterans for Peace Annual Convention

Posted by Martin Fleck on August 8, 2014

Western North Carolina’s PSR Chapter participated in the Veterans for Peace 29th Annual Convention in Asheville, NC. Several hundred people from across the U.S. and around the world attended the event, which featured a vigil, concert, and workshops. WNCPSR’s Steve Gilman gave a presentation on "The Humanitarian Consequences of Nuclear War", describing the catastrophic global impact of a limited nuclear war. Bob Howarth presented on the "The Uranium Processing Facility", describing the saga of flawed efforts to build a new bomb plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Dr. Stanley Dienst presented "Pivot to the East", describing the current nuclear weapons build-up in the South China Sea. Dr. Terry Clark moderated a Q&A following the presentations.
