On August 6th and 9th 1945, the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The suffering and horror caused by these explosions should have brought an end to this terrible experiment. Instead, 68 years on, the earth is increasingly threatened by stockpiles of nuclear warheads, a renaissance of the civil/military nuclear programme, and the unbridled use of uranium as a component of US and UK weapon systems.
The UK Government is currently planning to replace its Trident warheads and submarine bases. This will cost the taxpayer around £100 billion, money many believe would be better spent on housing, health or education.
Join us at the ARC Bar on 6th August for an evening of talks, film clips and discussion on security in the nuclear age, with topics ranging from the impact of Trident on the economy and climate change to radioactive warfare in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
