On July 23, the Basel Peace Office, of which GSI is a founding partner, launched Nuclear Games, a new film and an animated web-documentary addressing humanity’s nuclear history and the risks and impacts of nuclear weapons and energy.
The web-documentary includes five manga stories from the nuclear age, while the film highlghts the contradictions between the Tokyo Olympics – an event supposedly supporting peace and humanity – with the continued global nuclear arms race, and the apparent disregard of the host country Japan to the health and political impacts of the Fukushima nuclear power disaster and the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
On July 29, the Nation Magazine published a lead article by Basel Peace Office Director Alyn Ware entitiled ‘Tokyo’s Games Are Harming the Nuclear Weapons Ban Movement’, which focuses on the nuclear politics of Japan and the Tokyo Olympics, and features the launch of Nuclear Games.
