Dr. Helen Caldicott, author and longtime antinuclear campaigner, will speak, admission free, on "Nuclear Weapons: Can they Be Abolished?" Though obligated to disarm under the Non-Proliferation Treaty, the U.S. government plans new nuclear weapons in a trillion-dollar program while the Pentagon strategizes about their use. Hear the leading authority on atomic perils, an Australian physician whose international mobilizing of doctors against nuclear war culminated in the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize. Her books will be available.
