The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons
Aug 9 @ 5:00 pm

Sponsored by Juneau Veterans for Peace; Free and open to the public

 This documentary film tells the story of how the United Nations came to approve a new treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, despite the fact that the majority of the world’s population neither know about the treaty nor understand the threat that nuclear weapons pose to the world today. It takes the viewer through a brief history of nuclear bombs and the anti-nuclear activism that has pushed to eliminate them ever since their invention, including moving testimony from Hiroshima bomb survivor, Setsuko Thurlow.  It moves into a consideration of the humanitarian initiative that successfully challenged the dominant security discourse and the historic steps taken since 2010 to turn the treaty from a dream into a reality.  The key roles of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, who won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts, and the International Committee of the Red Cross are highlighted.  The story is told through interviews with 14 experts in their fields. Finally, the film shows what can be done by anyone to help bring the treaty into force and to stigmatise nuclear weapons until they are finally eradicated.
