We have a very special Program to kick off the New Year! “Command and Control,” the story of the 1980 deadly accident at the Titan II nuclear complex in Damascus, Arkansas will be shown at our January Pot Luck to be held Tuesday, January 10th, 6:30 p.m., 2510 Hidden Valley Drive. The 2 hour film on PBS starts at 8 p.m.
Bring a dish to share • Bread and Drinks provided • All are welcome
If you have seen the film, you are welcome to come for the fellowship and leave at any time. If you haven’t’ seen the film, we urge you to come watch at least a part of it with us or watch it at home.
“Command and Control” unravels the terrifying truth about the management of America’s nuclear arsenal and show us what can happen when weapons built to protect us can destroy us. It was featured at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and has received excellent reviews.
The film is a timely warning for all of us at the beginning of the Trump administration whose members may or may not be fully aware of their responsibility regarding the huge U.S. nuclear stockpile. Arkansas WAND will oppose any and all actions by our government that could lead to a new nuclear arms race. We support all steps that will lead to a safer world like taking our European missiles off high alert and signing the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
We are excited to announce that two friends of WAND with long experience in the nuclear field will lead a discussion of the film at our February Pot-luck: Bud Laumer is the Whistle Blower featured in the film. Ken Grunewald served as a missile crew member and on the national nuclear targeting staff and is very anti-nuclear.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get up to speed on the dangerous nuclear situation the world faces and how WAND can respond!
Happy New Year to All!
