“Command and Control” Screening & Discussion

December 10, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Did you know that we almost blew up Arkansas?

Based on the bestseller by Eric Schlosser, a new documentary called Command and Control tells the true story of how, yes, we nearly blew up Arkansas, down to the minute, and while the incident itself took place in 1980, its implications about our nuclear security and policy are all too relevant today.

The film is scheduled to air on PBS’s The American Experience in January. However, Global Zero has teamed up with the production company in order to hold special pre-release screenings all over the country. In Boston, that’s happening this Saturday—and you’re invited!

Who: Anyone and everyone interested in learning more about nuclear security and making the world safer!
What: We’ll be watching Command and Control, and then having a brief discussion about its relevance today. Baked goods will also be served.
Where: The Fox Branch Library Community Room (175 Massachusetts Ave, Arlington, MA 02474).
When: This Saturday (December 10th), 3-5 PM
Why: To build a community that is ready to take action against nuclear weapons. And also to have fun!

Please spread the word about this event and invite anyone you’d like—we have capacity for 150 people and the more, the merrier!
