No more nukes! Ban the bomb!

In connection with the release of the film Oppenheimer, “the bomb” is getting a lot of attention in the mass media this summer. It’s an opportunity for the public to learn something about the immense and horrifying impact that nuclear weapons have had and continue to have since July 16, 1945 when the first atomic bomb was exploded in the desert in New Mexico.
A couple of examples:
USA Today: “The threat is real: Our nuclear weapons are much more powerful than Oppenheimer’s atomic bomb”
Time: “The Navajo Suffered From Nuclear Testing. Oppenheimer Doesn’t Tell Our Story”
But for peace activists around the Bay Area, the upcoming weeks also offer multiple opportunities to mourn the victims of U.S. nuclear weapons and demand a nuclear-free future.
