Live Stream: Defuse Nuclear War!

June 12, 2022 @ 4:00 PM 6:30 PM

4:00 pm– 6:30 pm: With a focus on the current terrible dangers of nuclear war and the imperative of taking action to reduce them, the Defuse Nuclear War live stream will mark the 40th anniversary of when a million people gathered in Central Park for nuclear disarmament on June 12, 1982. This online event will serve as a catalyst for grassroots organizing.

Speakers include Medea Benjamin, Leslie Cagan, Pastor Michael McBride, Khury Petersen-Smith, David Swanson, Katrina vanden Heuvel, India Walton and Ann Wright. 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.
