Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 7-9pm
Dan Zak, Washington Post reporter and author of "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age" will speak about a trio of peace activists who infiltrated the "Fort Knox of Uranium" in 2012 to protest the existence of nuclear weapons. Their arrest, trial, imprisonment, and release is a moral thriller. They drew attention to the costly military-industrial complex that stockpiles deadly nukes. Zak asks, "What if they had been terrorists?" Why do the U.S. and Russia still have enough nuclear weaponry to destroy planet earth many times over?" So, how can we counter the greatest, immediate modern-day threat to humanity and the planet?
