Film Screening and Discussion – Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1

March 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The film tells the story of the human impacts of nuclear weapons on the people of the Marshall Islands and the secret radiation experiments that were conducted on them during the time of U.S. nuclear testing in the islands (1946-58) and afterwards. It is a catalyst for discussion about not only nuclear weapons and peace, but also racism, colonialism, and indigenous rights.

After the film screening (55 minutes), Rick Wayman of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation in California will host a Q&A and discussion about the film and other issues relating to the Marshall Islands and nuclear weapons. Wayman just returned from two weeks in The Hague, where he supported the legal team representing the Marshall Islands at the International Court of Justice in their nuclear disarmament lawsuits against India, Pakistan and the United Kingdom. The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, is a consultant to the Marshall Islands and is also supporting their court case against the United States in U.S. Federal Court calling for fulfillment of existing international legal obligations for nuclear disarmament.
