The first issue of the Nuclear Resister (NR) newsletter was published in October 1980 and coincidentally contained just one action report: that of the Plowshares Eight, the very first nuclear disarmament action fulfilling the words of the prophet Isaiah “to beat swords into plowshares, and spears into pruning hooks.” NR coordinators Jack and Felice Cohen-Joppa have continued the work of reporting on nonviolent resistance for a nuclear-free future since then – for the past 33 years from Tucson – with assistance from hundreds of people.
This event is a fundraiser to help with travel expenses to Georgia to attend the October 21 trial in federal court of the Kings Bay Plowshares (KBP). Jack and Felice are providing jail support for one of the KBP, Fr. Steve Kelly SJ, who has been in a Georgia county jail since the April 2018 action.
All donations welcome – thank you for your support!For more information:

There will be a brief intro to the film and an opportunity for discussion afterwards.
A powerful exposé in the January 21 Rolling Stone magazine has found that wastewater from many oil and gas wells is dangerously radioactive. Nearby residents, the local environment, and especially oil and gas industry employees may be exposed to toxic levels of radiation—but most people are totally unaware.
Please join us for a PSR webinar with Justin Nobel, the reporter whose two-year investigation culminated in these explosive revelations.
Mr. Nobel found, through hundreds of interviews with scientists, environmentalists, regulators, and workers, “a sweeping arc of [radioactive] contamination—oil-and-gas waste spilled, spread, and dumped across America…”
Radium is typically the most abundant radioactive substance in oil and gas wastewater, and it is so dangerous that it is subject to tight restrictions even at hazardous-waste sites. Yet today, radium-bearing wastewater, as Mr. Nobel writes, is transported along America’s highways in unmarked trucks; handled by workers who are often misinformed and under protected; leaked into waterways; and stored in dumps that are not equipped to contain the toxicity. [It] has even been used in commercial products sold at hardware stores and is spread on local roads as a de-icer.
