Watch Online: Good Thinking (Those Who've Tried to Halt Nuclear Weapons)

From Director Anthony Donovan: "For over 70 years humanity's greatest minds, including our scientists who knew the technology best, and our most inspiring social, spiritual and even military leaders have spoken clearly about the inconceivable waste, the terrible cost and gravest danger of nuclear weapons. This is an attempt to honor them and connect with what they shared with us.

They will clarify why now is the time to make them illegal, and transform the global business around such destructive weaponizing toward continuing to face mankind's challenges, and uplift both the significance and the Spirit of humanities journey.

Each of those presented here deserve further inquiry and I encourage your own in-depth study on each, and sharing in whatever medium your own works on this subject. We need to build upon common sense.
Good Thinking recognizes only some of the many millions of citizens who risked all, or took the time in their lives to stand up for a better world, encouraging both our own responsibility and clarity on the vital subject."

Nukewatch is a Wisconsin-based environmental and peace action group, dedicated to the abolition of nuclear power, weapons and continued radioactive waste production. Nukewatch brings critical attention to the locations, movements, dangers, and the politics of nuclear weapons and dangerous wastes. Staff and volunteers advocate Gandhian nonviolence in education and action, and report on nuclear issues in the Nukewatch Quarterly newsletter.

Nukewatch began in 1979 in response to the cold war build up of nuclear weapons and the secrecy surrounding the nuclear industry. Nukewatch conducted TrackWatch; a program to monitor and expose secret shipments of radioactive waste on U.S. rails; TruckWatch, the transportation of H-bombs and component parts in unmarked trucks by the DOE; Nukewatch mapped all 1,000 land-based nuclear missile silos for educational and organizing purposes. Nukewatch has a long history of successful grassroots organizing across the nation.

Nukewatch organized -- for 13 years -- two to four activities each year at the Navy's Project ELF in northern Wisconsin in opposition to this first-strike nuclear war communication system. It closed on September 30, 2004.

Nukewatch monitors the transportation of radioactive waste around the country and around the world on an on-going basis.  

We invite you to tour our site.


Nukewatch trainers are available to lead workshops in Nonviolent Action and Action Planning. Our reimbursement rates are very reasonable and we're willing to travel! If your group is ready to take a struggle for social justice or environmental protection to the next level, or if you are just looking for more information on what we have to offer, please contact us at 715-472-4185 or

Nukewatch Testifies at Canadian Hearings on Great Lakes Nuclear Waste Dump:

On September 24, 2013, at the invitation of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, Nukewatch's John LaForge joined dozens of citizens from Canada and the US in testifying against the Ontario government's consideration of plans to bury radioactive waste one mile from the shore of Lake Huron. Canada is the only country in the world studying such a risk so near to a body of drinking water. Public hearings were held in Kincardine, Ontario near the Bruce reactor complex, one of the largest in the world. John's full statement to the "Deep Geologic Repository Joint Review Panel" is posted as a Word document below as well as in full video form.
