Teach-in at UCSB on nuke labs

The hunger strikers in front of Cheadle have created awareness: Now practically every UC student at UCSB, UCSC, Berkeley and UCSF knows that our university operates 2 nuclear weapons labs.

But what do these labs really do? Are they building new nuclear weapons? How much waste/pollution do they create? What role does UC play in US nuclear weapons programs? What are the international laws governing nuclear weapons? Isn't it better to have UC manage the labs than a private corporation?

These and many more questions will be answered at this teach-in by the AS Student DOE Lab Oversight Committee.

8:30 pm at the Tent City, in front of Cheadle Hall on the UCSB campus, Tuesday May 15.

Bring five friends.
