Command and Control Movie on KQED

Based on the critically acclaimed book by Eric Schlosser, this chilling documentary sheds new light on the one of America's most dangerous nuclear accidents - the deadly incident at an Arkansas Titan II missile complex. Eyewitness accounts, from the man who dropped the socket that penetrated the missile to the man who designed the warhead, chronicle nine hours of sheer terror in the effort to prevent an explosion 600 times more powerful than Hiroshima.

Nuclear warhead detonations due to accident or miscalculation have been closer than the nuclear weapons establishment wants anyone to know, not just this once but many times. “Command and Control” is a must-see for the cautionary tale it tells us about nuclear risks today as well as for its stunning documentation of one of yesterday’s most frightening near misses.

Upcoming Bay Area Broadcasts:

· KQED 9: Tue, Jan 10, 2017 -- 8:00pm

· KQED 9: Wed, Jan 11, 2017 -- 2:00am

Court Hearing - RMI case

The Marshall Islands' litigation in the International Court of Justice seeking enforcement of Article 6 of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty was stymied on procedural grounds and will not move forward. However, the case against the U.S. will be heard on March 15, 2017 in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. Tri-Valley CAREs’ staff attorney, Scott Yundt, has submitted Amicus Curiae briefs in the case to both the Northern District and Ninth Circuit Courts. Scott and I and a contingent from Tri-Valley CAREs will be at the courthouse to support the Marshall Islands’ stellar legal team. If you are in the Bay Area and want to attend the hearing with us, contact marylia@trivalleycares.org or scott@trivalleycares.org to coordinate logistics. Additionally, the oral arguments are expected to be live-streamed, and the NGOs supporting the case, including us, will organize a report to the grassroots immediately afterward. Stay tuned!

Location: 9th Circuit Court of Appeal - Courtroom 3, 95 7th St, San Francisco, CA 94103
