If New Mexico seceded from the United States, it would be the third largest nuclear power in the world.

There are 2700 nuclear warheads buried next to the Albuquerque Airport. On Saturday outside the Kirtland Air Force Base thousands rallied against war.

We talk to Bob Anderson, who ran for U.S. Congress on the Green Party ticket four years ago and elementary school teacher Jean Pauls.

Guests:

  • Bob Anderson, Committee to Stop the War Machine.
  • Jean Pauls, Committee to Stop the War Machine.
