Actions taken by American citizens concerned with the threat of a nuclear war. Academy Award nominee for best documentary short.
- Show treatment
Anti-nuclear activists at the height of the Cold War use non-violent actions that range from writing letters to the President to passing town meeting resolutions, marching in the street, quitting a nuclear weapons factory job, refusing to pay a share of their taxes, entering a weapons facility and deliberately facing prison for these and other more extreme actions.
Molly Rush, a Pittsburgh activist, movingly explains to a group of neighbors why she is willing to be jailed for her non-violent protest.
"Gods of Metal" is a vivid reminder for concerned people today, a documentary text book of the kinds of peaceful protests you can take.
