Full Text:
Nuclear Evacuation Santa Monica - Asserting that preparing for evacuation in the event of a nuclear war would be "a wasteful, self-deceptive, futile exercise," the City of Santa Monica rejected participation in the Federal Government's nuclear Crisis Relocation Planning. While calling on President Reagan to pursue "immediate and serious negotiations with the Soviet Union" to reduce both nations' nuclear arsenals, the City Council's unanimously-approved resolution provided for distribution of a publication that outlines "why no civil defense measure short of gross reduction in the size of the international arsenal of nuclear weapons, including those of the United States, can protect this City's residents from the effects of a nuclear attack."
