Socialist Worker

Return of the nuclear nightmare

Issue No. 1803

'On TV the old generals talk of first strike and second strike capability as though they're discussing a family board game. My friends and I discuss Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the dead bodies choking the river, the living stripped of their skin.'

Indian author and campaigner Arundhati Roy speaks for hundreds of millions of people in India and Pakistan. The men responsible for this nightmare don't live only in New Delhi and Islamabad but in Washington, London and other capitals too.
