Leading activists featured at anti-nuclear weapons presentation

Activist Michael Walli, recently released after serving a two-year jail term for spilling blood on the top uranium production site for nuclear weapons in Oak Ridge, Tenn.; and Robert Alvarez, an international expert on nuclear proliferation issues at the Institute for Policy Studies, will headline the Nuclear Free Committee’s program on halting nuclear weapons July 16 at the Takoma Park Community Center.

The event also features the shocking video, “A Time Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945.” The date of the event marks the 70th anniversary of the world’s first nuclear weapon detonation, the Trinity test , carried out by the U.S. at the Alamogordo proving grounds in the New Mexico desert on July 16,1945. The program will begin at 7 p.m. There is no admissions charge.
