Organizer/Author
Militarization, War, Labor and History Education Conference
San Francisco has played a historic role in US wars. San Francisco ship workers built war ships at Union Ironworks, which were used in the war with Spain and then the occupation of the Philippines. Also, in the post WW2 period, contaminated ships from nuclear weapon tests in the Pacific were brought to Hunters Point shipyard. They were sandblasted which spread the radioactive material into the area and the communities that surrounded the shipyard.
This forum will look at how these wars have affected San Francisco, and how the US is now expanding the militarization of Japan, Korea and the Philippines as well as Europe and Ukraine.
