Anti-Nuclear Documentary

Filmmaker Helen Young has made a documentary about elderly activists, mainly retired nuns and priests, who break into high-security government facilities in order to protest nuclear arms. Young’s documentary covers the 2012 break-in at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the Plowshares movement, and includes the UN anti-nuclear treaty of 2017. It’s called The Nuns, the Priests, and the Bombs.

“Nuclear disarmament activists, including Catholic nuns and priests, challenge the security and legality of America’s nuclear weapons when they break into the “Fort Knox” of uranium and a Trident nuclear submarine base. Are they criminals or prophets sending a wake-up call to the world?” ~ Helen Young

Helen Young Interview

The film is still in the screenings stage. Hopefully, it will soon be available on Netflix. Meanwhile, you may be interested to catch the Helen Young interview on the December 23 edition of the Ralph Nader Radio Hour, which discussed making The Nuns, The Priests, and the Bombs.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
