The second event, “Defuse Nuclear War”, will live stream, also on June 12th. This event will focus on the present great threats of nuclear war and the imperative to reduce them.
Several dozen peace, disarmament and social justice organizations are co-sponsoring this event, which is sponsored by the RootsAction Education Fund. We will hear live presentations from a wide range of speakers including Hanieh Jodat Barnes, Medea Benjamin, Jerry Brown, Leslie Cagan, Mandy Carter, Emma Claire Foley, Pastor Michael McBride, Khury Petersen-Smith, David Swanson and Katrina vanden Heuvel. Director/producer Jeff Daniels will speak and present excerpts from his documentary “Television Event” about huge impacts of the 1983 TV film “The Day After.” We will also see the world premiere of a video featuring Daniel Ellsberg on “defusing the threat of nuclear war,” produced by Oscar-nominated director Judith Ehrlich.
