On 29 August, the International Day Against Nuclear Tests, both the Russian and American governments were preparing to hold more nuclear weapon delivery system tests, and all nuclear states were actively modernising their weapons.
For anti-nuclear activists, who have been advocating against the development, testing and use of nukes since their inception, it’s a bit like fighting a zombie war that never ends. But even though nukes keep rearing their dangerous heads, nuclear resistance has a long and powerful history, and continues to shape debates and practices around the nuclear weapons (and nuclear power) today.
Here in Australia there has been a long resistance to nuclear -- from mining to weapons to war -- and it has reached from the grassroots level to policy and government.
Join us for this panel discussion of the power of nuclear resistance, the best practices for anti-nuclear advocacy and the importance of knowing our his/herstories and of giving primacy to humanitarian priorities and the voices of communities affected by nukes
