Join the Nuclear Information Service (NIS) for a webinar to celebrate the life and work of John Ainslie. 

‘The Sword of Damocles’ was the website of the late nuclear weapons researcher and activist, John Ainslie, where he published a great many years of meticulous nuclear weapons research and influential reports for the benefit of disarmament campaigners and researchers. This event is an opportunity for those who worked with John or used his research and reports to reflect on his contributions to the peace movement and the continuing value of his work today.

Speakers will discuss John’s work on Trident and Scotland, the US-UK relationship, UK nuclear war plans and targeting of Russia as well as memories of John by people who knew him well. The online event will be chaired by Trish Whitham, Co-ordinator at Nuclear Information Service and there will be opportunities for participants to share their own reflections.
