AFSC's Arnie Alpert plays a pivotal role in many of the peace movement initiatives in NH. Here he is broadening the discussion to include issues and events at and about the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant as well as those associated with Seabrook Station.
Stop nuclear pollution and fund clean-up
More than 65 years after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- 65 years of misspent trillions, contaminated air, land, and water, stockpiled thousands of warheads -- we are less secure, as more nations acquire these deadly weapons. We call on Congress to:
Eliminate funding to modernize nuclear weapons laboratories and arsenals, in this year's budget!
Stop nuclear pollution and fund clean-up of DOE sites!
Support nonproliferation and a time-tabled process to abolish nuclear weapons now!

First of all, let me express my gratitude to the organizers for inviting me to this important conference and allowing me to speak before you.
Junko speaks widely about her experiences and opposition to nuclear weapons across Japan and has traveled to a number of countries for this purpose, including to Egypt (to help teach rising members of its foreign service) and Korea, as well as here in the U.S. She was a keynote speaker at the national peace studies association conference a few years ago. Her art provides her another way to powerfully communicate the grave dangers and immediate personal impacts of nuclear weapons. She will show a slide show or some of her art as part of her presentation.
