Series VI. Nuclear Weapons, 1978-2004

Scope and Content Notes:

This series contains information relating specifically to the movement for abolition of nuclear weapons. Materials outline the concerns of Peace Links relating to nuclear disarmament and the Pentagon’s "Star Wars" Strategic Defense Initiative program, and focus on lobbying efforts in the United Nations and US Senate, as well as informational campaigns regarding alternatives to nuclear weaponry. These efforts focused specifically on the dangers that nuclear weapons pose to children, and Peace Links sought to involve sympathetic women’s and Christian groups in the movement against nuclear weapons. Of particular interest is a planning and curriculum guide for dealing with issues of nuclear war in a classroom setting. There is also documentation relating to the taping of a joint venture between Point Park College and Peace Links for a film program on Star Wars. It features informational items concerning events, films and television shows, newsletters from related organizations, lectures, conferences, and anti-nuclear war reading lists. New materials were added June 2011 in the section entitled, "New Material Added, 2011".
