History

In 1971 a handful of determined activists leased a small fishing vessel, called the Phyllis Cormack, and set sail for Amchitka Island in Alaska. Their mission was to protest U.S. nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska to place themselves in harm’s way. Despite being intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard, they brought worldwide attention to the dangers of nuclear testing.
