What We’re About

The Nuclear Resister networks the anti-nuclear and anti-war resistance movement while acting as a clearinghouse for information about contemporary nonviolent resistance to war and the nuclear threat. Our emphasis is on support for the women and men jailed for these actions.  This website is the online companion to the quarterly Nuclear Resister newsletter, a more comprehensive chronicle.

We believe that in any significant movement for social change, many committed individuals are imprisoned. Behind bars, they are physically isolated from their supporters and their own resistance activity is limited. Broader awareness of their actions and support for the imprisoned activist are essential to the movement for a peaceful, nuclear-free future.

We invite you to write a note of support to an imprisoned resister, read some of their writings from jail, learn about the many inspiring anti-nuclear and anti-war nonviolent civil resistance actions around the world, and find out about future actions. You can also sign up for an e-newsletter.

We need your help to continue this work – a donation of any amount goes a long way! And please send us news, statements, press coverage, videos and photos of your actions.
