About The Poster:
This poster makes reference to one of the most significant nuclear accidents in American history. According to the (US) Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NRA): "The Three Mile Island Unit 2 (TMI-2) reactor, near Middletown, Pa., partially melted down on March 28, 1979. This was the most serious accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant operating history, although its small radioactive releases had no detectable health effects on plant workers or the public. Its aftermath brought about sweeping changes involving emergency response planning, reactor operator training, human factors engineering, radiation protection, and many other areas of nuclear power plant operations. It also caused the NRC to tighten and heighten its regulatory oversight. All of these changes significantly enhanced U.S. reactor safety."
Protests across the US - many at a grass roots level- led to Marches on Washington. This poster, simple, naive and powerful in its own way, harkens back to that time.
