‘Beyond Hiroshima’ discussion group set for Monday

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Study Group will host a panel discussion at 6 p.m. Monday at Fuller Lodge on the theme of “Beyond Hiroshima.” 

The speakers will include Santa Fe filmmaker Godfrey Reggio, San Ildefonso Pueblo leader Gilbert Sanchez, public health expert and activist Carol Miller, writer, educator and mother Marita Prandoni, and study group member Greg Mello. 

Monday will be the 73rd anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing, the first use of nuclear weapons in war.

The rallying cry of “Never again!” from the surviving victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks has troubling historical relevance in New Mexico even now, given the continuing mission of New Mexico’s nuclear labs. 

Just this week, STRATCOM Commander Hyten said the National Nuclear Security Administration must resolve its plutonium pit (atom bomb core) production impasse by year’s end. “By about next spring, we have to be on a path to building them (pits),” he said. 

Currently and for at least the next decade, LANL is the only place pits can be made. 

Two billion dollars in building modifications and new equipment have been approved to prepare LANL for pit production. Extensive new facilities costing many billions more are being considered for possible subsequent expansion.
