Nuclear warship protests: Nelson (2 o 3)

Nuclear warship protests: Nelson

The anxiety that nuclear-warship visits could make ports a target for attack by perceived Cold War enemies is highlighted in this placard at an anti-nuclear protest in Nelson in November 1983. A related fear was that nuclear-propelled ships could have an accident while in port and leak deadly radiation.
