A Year of Disobedience

A Year of Disobedience and a Criticality of Conscience is a beautiful re-release of the original 1979 black & white photo-documentary on the demonstrations, civil disobedience, arrests and trials of thousands of people against the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant. Originally situated near Denver, Colorado the plant was a genuine threat to the life and health of millions of people and was eventually shut down after an FBI raid and a sealed Grand Jury investigation. It remains cloaked in controversy after a highly questionable Super Fund cleanup and conversion into a Wildlife Refuge. Includes all of the original photos by Joseph Daniel, and the original text and trial transcriptions by Daniel Ellsberg and Keith Pope, and original poetry by Allen Ginsberg. The revised material includes a new historical update and reflection by LeRoy Moore, and a powerful new Afterword by Daniel Ellsberg and Joseph Daniel
