No Nukes is Good Nukes!: The Legacy of New Zealand's Grassroots Anti-Nuclear Movement
Using eyewitness accounts with archival footage and still photography, this film traces concerns for a Nuclear Free Pacific - protesting against French testing at Moruroa, and the Peace Squadron's actions against visiting nuclear ships to local ports. After years of concern about the effects of nuclear testing in the Pacific region and increasing opposition to vessels carrying nuclear weapons to New Zealand, the Nuclear Free legislation was passed by an Act of Parliament in 1987. This film celebrates the 20th year since that event.
