Educational Picket at the National Atomic Testing Museum
10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Greet visitors to this museum that is devoted to remembering the Cold War in all its nuclear glory...and not much of the horror. We will informally supplement the discourse and remind people of the ongoing fallout from the use of the atomic bomb in 1945 as we memorialize the victims in Nagasaki (and Hiroshima).
