The Pittsburgh Branch hosted Ellen Thomas and Odile Hugonot Haber on their Nuclear Free Future speaking tour on May 18. They were joined by environmental scholar Patricia De Marco, who discussed “The Nuclear Option: Ethical Issues and Obligations.”
The event was complemented by the exhibition Strange Beauty: Autoradiography from Fukushima, works by the highly esteemed Japanese photographer Takashi Morizumi marking the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
With Ellen and Odile, we visited Congressman Doyle’s office and delivered petitions with more than 100 signatures in support of Eleanor Holmes Norton’s bill for nuclear disarmament.
