Nuclear Colonialism in the Age of the Ban Treaty: from New Mexico to Marshall Islands and across the Pacific
The Affected Communities Working Group of the Nuclear Ban Treaty Collaborative will host a discussion marking the one year anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (ban treaty). This free on-line seminar seeks to tell the truth through the lived experience of those most affected by the nuclear fuel trajectory and activate our collective work toward disarmament. Speakers and artists of affected communities and allies will weave together the history of nuclear colonialism from uranium mining, nuclear testing, production and use — to the deadly waste that will be with us for generations to come. The seminar will also highlight current educational efforts to make sure that these hidden stories are revealed and not repeated.
While this event is free, we encourage donations to the Marshallese Educational Initiative, an organization that works to benefit the Marshallese who have left their home in the Marshall Islands, many due to lingering effects of radiation from US nuclear testing and climate change.
