Description:

Jason Salzman began working on the Greenpeace campaign against Rocky Flats in August 1989, shortly after the FBI raid and before the plant was closed for safety violations. As an activist, he used creative PR tactics to ensure that Rocky Flats? operations would not resume. In this interview, Jason talks about his background, the lead up to the Flats? shutdown, specific strategies that focused public attention, the end of Rocky Flats production, and the repercussions of that success. Jason also discusses his ongoing work: scrutinizing the media, pushing for better public information, and promoting media attention to activist issues.
This interview is part of a series of interviews about the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant.
