Nukewatch brings critical attention to the locations, movements, dangers, and the politics of nuclear weapons and radioactive wastes. Join our staff and volunteers in raising awareness and taking nonviolent action to address the nuclear dangers that threaten current and future generations.
Nuclear Ban Treaty Day of Action
January 22, 2022
Join the Nuclear Ban Treaty Collaborative and Nukewatch in planning actions to help maximize the global impact of this historic anniversary. We envision a variety of coordinated, nationwide public actions that spotlight the nuclear ban treaty as a victory for humanity.
We invite people across the U.S. and beyond to be part of a major media event, holding signs and banners at nuclear weapons related sites and other places on this important day. For more info see The Nuclear Ban Treaty Days of Action Facebook Group or Resources for Actions in the Age of the Ban Treaty. Learn more on our Action Alerts page .
January 25, 2022 Noon Central
The Affected Communities Working Group of the Nuclear Ban Treaty Collaborative will host a discussion marking the one year anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (ban treaty). This free on-line seminar seeks to tell the truth through the lived experience of those most affected by the nuclear fuel trajectory and activate our collective work toward disarmament. Speakers and artists of affected communities and allies will weave together the history of nuclear colonialism from uranium mining, nuclear testing, production and use — to the deadly waste that will be with us for generations to come. The seminar will also highlight current educational efforts to make sure that these hidden stories are revealed and not repeated.
While this event is free, we encourage donations to the Marshallese Educational Initiative, an organization that works to benefit the Marshallese who have left their home in the Marshall Islands, many due to lingering effects of radiation from US nuclear testing and climate change.

Get Nuclear Heartland: A guide to the 450 land-based missiles of the United States
Nuclear Heartland USA – Watch the video of Nuclear Heartland Book Presentation by Co-editor John LaForge.
Nukewatch’s book chronicles the history of U.S. land-based nuclear weapons as well as the decades of efforts by peace activists toward their removal. The book is a revised edition of the original Nuclear Heartland, published by Nukewatch in 1988 when the land-based nuclear arsenal numbered 1,000. The updated version reminds readers that 27 years after the end of the Cold War, the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system, now at less than half its former size, remains on alert throughout the Plains states with its underground missiles ready to launch—even though land-based missiles have been declared useless, dangerous and ripe for elimination by activists as well as high-ranking military and political officials.
