Amidon Arrested at Former Nevada Test Site

The Nevada National Security Site, formerly the Nevada Test Site, is where 1000 nuclear detonations have taken place. John Amidon was arrested at this site for protesting nuclear weapons and describes this experience, which took place at this year’s annual Justice for the Desert protest. The risk of nuclear war is at an all time high, as least since the Cuban missile crisis. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
