Jim McCluskey:

“I work with the World Court Project, Kingston Peace Council and the Stop the War Coalition with
a view to achieving peaceful rather than violent solutions to conflict situations in foreign affairs.
Recently I have produced two A5 publications on the subject of ‘The Nuclear Threat’. The titles
are ‘The Nuclear Threat: Intolerable and Avoidable - The arguments against nuclear weapons (and
the arguments for)’ and ‘The Nuclear Threat: Intolerable and Avoidable - Accidents,
misjudgements, and mega Foul-ups and What would nuclear war be like?’

I am particularly interested in speaking about the relation been the ‘Just War’ concept and the
present conflicts, nuclear issues including Trident, Militarism and its costs, the loss of a spiritual
view of the world and what needs to be done to get back on a hopeful course.

I have also had some training in public speaking having been a member of the Toastmasters Club
for the last two years.”
