On March 1, 1954, the United States tested its most powerful
hydrogen bomb at 15 megatons, code named Castle Bravo. The plutonium and
ionizing radiation weapons were created here in Washington State and detonated
upon Bikini and Enewetak Atoll - Marshall Islands. In generations to come,
people may be displaced, food security lost, and other chronic health
conditions as an outcome of the nuclear era. We are not alone! We shall never forget! The resilience and
strength of nuclear frontline communities who are continuing to fight for
dignity and respect must be upheld by these remembered stories towards justice.

–On Tues., March 16
at 2 PM, the discussion will be focused on verification as a critical component
of arms control and disarmament activities that presents both political and
technical challenges. Verification
activities have been central to demonstrating commitment to the Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), with some State Parties currently working on
abilities to verify the adherence and maintenance of nuclear disarmament in the
future. However, questions remain over what verification mechanisms will be in
place under the newly entered-into-force Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear
Weapons (TPNW). And although the New START agreement between the United States
and Russia has recently been extended for five years, verification options for
any future arms control agreements continue to require urgent attention. Check
out https://rusi.org/event/verification-arms-control-and-disarmament. There are
several speakers, including Zia Mian, Princeton University, and Pranay Vaddi,
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
