Two Utah women will discuss the international drive for a nuclear test ban treaty, showing photos of their recent trip to the Soviet Union, at a meeting tonight in the Holladay Branch Library, 2150 E. 4800 South.
Evelyn Richards and Dee Rowland attended the International Citizens Congress for a Nuclear Test Ban held in Kazakhstan, USSR. Their presentation is sponsored by the League of Women Voters and starts at 7 p.m. at the library.The Citizens Congress proposes that an international anti-nuclear movement be forced. The movement's aims would be to:
- Arouse public opinion in support of a comprehensive test ban treaty. The present treaty between the USSR and the United States outlaws above-ground nuclear tests, but not subsurface testing.
- Register, record and publicize global opinion in support of the proposed treaty.
- Attempt to hold elected officials and governments accountable to "the will of the people" concerning nuclear testing.
