Join Scottish CND for this online discussions with guest speaker Linda Pentz Gunter.

While there are a number of conflicting theories and arguments about why the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Linda Pentz Gunter will argue that it was racism that fundamentally underpinned the decision. Worse, this pattern of discrimination repeated itself throughout the Cold War almost everywhere atomic tests took place. In the US in particular this practice, which began with uranium mining conducted by unprotected Native Americans on their lands, continues across the wider nuclear sector. Until we acknowledge and address this ugly truth, we will fail to abolish nuclear weapons.
