2016 SPEAKING TOUR: Nuclear Heartland and an End to Land-Based Missiles

John LaForge, longtime staffer at Nukewatch, regular contributor to CounterPunch, and Co-editor of Nuclear Heartland, Revised: A Guide to the 450 Land-Based Missiles of the United States will discuss this new book from Nukewatch and the need for permanent disarmament of these nuclear weapons. LaForge and a partner visited all 1,000 U.S. land-based missiles in 1988 to document their locations for the original Nuclear Heartland. There are the only people ever to see all 1,000 missile silos.

In a foreword to the new book, Matthew Rothschild, former Editor of The Progressive magazine, writes, “Becoming aware of these hideous weapons in our midst is the first step toward arousing people to take another run at nuclear disarmament, and that’s why Nuclear Heartland is so vitally important today. It shows us where the weapons are, and how they’ve almost become a part of the landscape.” Come hear about what Dr. Helen Caldicott calls “one of the most frightening books I have ever read.” With high-level military and civilian officials calling for the complete elimination of the country’s ICBMs, the message of Nuclear Heartland could not be timelier.
