70th Anniversary of First UK Nuclear Tests

October 3rd 2022 marked the 70th anniversary of the first UK nuclear tests in the Montebello islands, Australia.

In commemoration of this date, Scottish CND held a webinar exploring the impact of UK nuclear testing on public health and the environment – with a particular focus on indigenous peoples. 

Art and activism came together powerfully through the contribution of aboriginal artists, who gave Scottish CND permissions to share their art in illustration of the stories shared.

A recording of the event will be published online shortly.
