-------- NUCLEAR SAVAGE - FILM SCREENING AND POTLUCK -------------------------

U.S. nuclear bomb tests in the Marshall Islands used the islanders as human  
guinea pigs for three decades to study the effects of nuclera fallout on  
human beings with devastaing results. Filmmaker Adam Jonas Horowiz tells the  
story using recently reclassified U.S. government documents, survivor  
testimony and unseen archival footage


This event will also welcome the walkers participating in "Walking for Peace  
and Non-Violence" from July 30 through August 6, organized by New England  
Peace Pagoda./


In, May, the Marshall Islands sued the 9 nuclear weapons states, including  
the United States, in U.S. federal court as well as in the International  
Court of Justice, for failing to eliminate their nuclear arsenals as required  
by the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
