Montclair Environmental Affairs Office to discuss impact of Nuclear Savage.
Montclair’s Environmental Affairs office and Community Green will be presenting the movie “Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1” on Thursday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m. as part of their thought-provoking Green Film Series. The screening will take place at the Montclair Public Library, located at 50 South Fullerton Avenue. This event is free and open to the public.
According to the event page, “‘Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1’ is an untold but true detective story, revealing how U.S. scientists turned a Pacific paradise into a radioactive hell. This multi-award-winning documentary exposes a heart-breaking portrait of Marshall Islanders struggling for dignity and survival after decades of being used as human guinea pigs: inflicted with intentional radiation poisoning by U.S. scientists to study the effects of nuclear fallout on human beings…with devastating results. ‘Nuclear Savage’ is a shocking tale that pierces the heart of our democratic principles. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the United States’ atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and in April the 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference begins at the U. N. in NYC. The International Peace and Planet Conference takes place April 24-25.”
At this event, local representatives from NJ Peace Action will join the audience to lead a public conversation, answer questions on this timely topic and explain the Peace and Planet mobilization.
Montclar’s Environmental Affairs office urges interested participants to join the event and bring a friend, a family member or neighbor to the film screening and the open discussion afterwards.
