The Dangers of Nuclear Weapons in our Neighborhood

Glen Milner: "The Dangers of Nuclear Weapons in our Neighborhood," on Pirate Television

Glen Milner is a researcher and activist with the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action. He has focused on the danger of nuclear weapons. For over 25 years, he has used the Freedom of Information Act to monitor Naval activities in the Puget Sound Region. He discovered that rail cars carrying submarine missile rocket motors involved in a 1986 derailment contained large amounts of high explosives, contrary to official Navy statements, and also that nuclear warheads were being transported by truck to the Bangor submarine base in violation of rules. In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8 to 1 in his favor in Milner v. Department of the Navy, involving explosives handling issues at Naval Magazine Indian Island.

Glen discusses his current involvement with Ground Zero and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility in a National Environmental Policy Act lawsuit against the Navy’s second Explosives Handling Wharf at Bangor.
