"Splinters the Length of Daggers," poem by Hall Gardner

A new video from Hall Gardner in Paris:

Splinters the Length of Daggers was written in 1979 in reaction to the Three Mile Island nuclear accident; it was read at numerous anti-nuclear protests in the 1980s, and it was published in Hall Gardner, The Wake-UP Blast (2008) The Fukushima nuclear crisis appears much worse than the Three Mile Island accident and will require a complete reassessment of the so-called "peaceful" atom and the world-wide plutonium economy in the effort to achieve a nuclear free world and alternative energy infrastructure. See discussion of nuclear proliferation in Hall Gardner, American Global Strategy and the 'War on Terrorism' (Ashgate, 2005), paperback.
